and done.

I'm back home now, making calls etc.

She arrived on the floor around 2:30pm and we waited for the doctor.

She is in and out of sleep, very sick to her stomach, still on oxygen and intravenous.

The doctor tested her voice first thing, which was his big fear, and she could still squeak a little.

He removed half her thyroid and the 4cm diameter growth. He couldn't tell if it was bad so we will have to wait and see.

This news helped L feel considerably better, and she began to return to her old self. The self I haven't really seen for too many weeks.

She is weak and will need some time, but for tonight, all is well.

Thanks for your thoughts, prayers, and kind words. They are drops of rain on a very dry garden.

Happy Valentines Day.

  2. Good news so far, by the sounds of it! I was beginning to doubt that old maxim about no news being good news and wondering whether you were tied up at the hospital with emergency or other related to Lauralea. Glad everything seems to be progressing well.

  5. Good! I hope you can both sleep a little better tonight now that the surgery is over. And hopefully tomorrow she'll be home and will be even more back to her "old" self. Take care, you guys. Give her a hug for me.

  8. Although she probably doesn't feel like it right now, I'm sure she's healthier this evening than she was this morning. Wishing for a speedy recovery.

  17. I'm a bit behind, working nights and all. But good to hear she came through surgery okay. Tell her to not be a hero and take the pain drugs! It does help with healing. Holding up some good karma for a speedy recovery! :)
