Why it has been so long since I have posted.
So this is what I have been doing for the last little while. Don't these stitches look wicked bad? They feel about the same as they look. Well a few weeks ago I had a lump in my throat checked out, and it turned out to be thyroid cancer. So Dr. Catten said we need to remove it. So Thursday I got my entire thyroid removed. And to be honest with you I thought that I was pretty tough, but I was not near as tough as I thought. This hurt like the Dickens. I am doing so much better now, and I am home resting. I will have to do a radiation treatment in like six weeks, than I will have a scan every year for five years. But the worst part is over. If you look really close at the picture you will see the staple marks around my wound from where the Dr. stapled the drape to me. I would think maybe tape, or something would have worked just as well.
