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.

Megan-
I glanced at your blog once a few weeks ago. I thought I would check it again today and when I saw the title I thought it might be to announce something exciting. I was so shocked to see that big ol' wound. I am so so sorry. What a crappy trial, you are one tough gal though, and I know you can do it. You have a great family and lots of friends. I will make sure to add you to my prayers. Good luck, and buy you some vit. E oil and Mederma and that scar will disappear in no time, it is a pretty cool battle wound though-maybe you shouldn't make it disappear! Again, I am so sorry-I truly hope you recover very very fast.
Sorry for the novel of a blog comment. TTYL-Kandice
