The Return of the Thyroid
The thyroid makes its return to our blog, as Amy is up for surgery on her thyroid tomorrow (Thursday). Her bloodwork has shown a return to normal thyroid levels after her radiation treatment last spring, but the growth has gotten bigger rather than go away. So, the doctors are going to cut out the right side of the thyroid (opposite of what the picture at left shows) while hopefully not damaging the thyroid to the extent that Amy would have to go on medication. Surgery is on Thursday morning, and they will be keeping her overnight for observation. Please keep her in your prayers!
