Hey Guys!

Saturday, April 17, 2010

Just wanted to go ahead and give everybody an update. I went in for surgery and instead of having just my left part of my thyroid removed they removed my whole thyroid because it was all cancerous as well as 4/9 lymph nodes. There was capsular invasion present and the only lymph nodes tested were on my left side (same as the nodule) It's been such a hectic past three weeks and the lack of support I'm getting from my family is quite shattering. I was so in hope that this sickness would be enough to aid in mending our broken relationship. I also got diagnosed with Hashimito's Thyroiditis and things for me have been so hectic. I'm still not feeling well and visited my endocronologist on Wednesday only to find out that I've got a pretty aggressive cancer and the fact that it has spread is not good so they are enducing my body to go into shock by shooting my TS levels from a normal range 1-2 to a whopping 35-40 to get my body ready for a small iodine treatment to perform a full body scan which is necessary prior to getting my radio active iodine treatments. I'm being forced to go on this horrible diet, while being sick it's a low iodine diet and it's like all I can eat is lettuce with oil and vinegar ugh the thought of no salt or dairy products I'm like WTF! Chad has been so helpful in driving me to so many different appointments and trying to help me keep up with my long list of medications. I'm pretty shocked about all of this, and dissapointed that I won't be able to go to work when I had planned. Financially we are truly at a stand point, not knowing how we are going to pay our bills much less afford me not working. I have a very long road to recovery and in the midst of all of this I've decided that I had to make some very tough choices so I've turned off my internet/cable- luckily my neighbor is letting me borrow hers but I have such a low signal I'm kind of scared to write a post. I have little to no energy and find myself sleeping way too much. On a good note my scar is healing fabulously and you can barely see it! I apologize for not being on here much, but with all that's been going on I truly haven't found time to even relax! I really thought that while recovering from this surgery I'd be able to have some down time however now I'm overwhelmed with the amount of appointments I have and my inability to drive makes it really hard on Chad. I'll be going to stay with my cousins next Friday for a few days only to get through the roughest part of this- when I'll be really sick! I hope to get a few reviews/giveaways done tommorow night and appreciate all the continuing support and entries into my fabulous giveaways! Please keep praying for me, and I can't wait to be back in action soon!

You are in my prayers. Take care of yourself and know that we are all here praying with and for you. Chad is a God send to you and relationships, (real ones) are meant to be that way. Grow stronger each and every day..sorry about the terrible diet....no cheese??? That would be unheard of here.
