update...

surgery went well. as well as it can go i suppose. i was delayed getting into the surgery because of the surgery prior to my own. that didn't sit well with my nerves. so there i sat for 2 extra hours... waiting. when they finally wheeled me down to 'hugs & kisses' corner, i said good bye to my sister, dad, jan && todd. i cried of course. i was so scared. oh my goodness was i scared. being wheeled into the room i could only hear dr. malotte talking to me about making me more warm & seeing the anesthesiologist push more (much more) happy juice. i was out. not even remembering being transferred to the surgical table.

what i do remember is a little silly. i remember the recovery nurse talking a lot. i remember seeing my dad first. i remember jeremy bringing me candy and a card... but he ate the candy. hahahaha. that made me laugh.

they got the entire thyroid. each side of the thyroid was the size of a peach. so basically there were two peaches inside my throat. whoa! i am recovering. in pain, but doing good. thank you everyone who has prayed for me! i really appreciate it. more than you know.

I texted Todd on Thursday to find out what room you were in, because I was going to go visit you while you were all sequestered in the hospital, and you had already gone home!! ah, well. The best laid plans of mice and men...
