Wheww

Yep that’s right!! A big sigh of relief!! My biopsy came back negative. That means that I have no cancer in my thyroid!! Praise God. I know that he has heard everyone’s prayers. It is about time I got some good news without doing any work (chemo)! I was beginning to think my body hated me.
Another new development is my surgery. My surgeon called and said the tumor board thought removing all my lymph nodes (those in my underarms) was overkill. I want to be as aggressive as is necessary but I don’t want to do something that I don’t need or that won’t benefit me. So now I have an appointment to meet with the surgeon to discuss what the tumor board’s recommendations are and what I feel I need to do. I really just don’t want the cancer to come back any time soon so I’ll do anything to keep it away. (I have that song in my head- Rain, Rain go away, don’t come back another day)
I am really looking forward to Monday. Typically (in my new cancer world) I would go in for another treatment. Since I am finished, I am looking forward to seeing how I will feel with no new chemo in my body.

  1. Michelle,
    You just made my “good” day – even better! I am so happy to hear about your thyroid news. Chuck cringed when I read your last post about the thyroid biopsy. He went through that same thing 30 years ago, only his was cancer. Chuck is living proof that you CAN beat this disease!!! Keeping you in prayer!

    Love,
    Vickie
