He made it through surgery yesterday just fine....even
though the supposed 3 hour procedure took 5 1/2!
The tumor on his thyroid was cancerous and so the Dr.
had to remove the entire thing plus one of his lymph
nodes as the cancer had spread.
The Dr. feels pretty confident he got it all - but Jimmy
will still have to do radioactive iodine treatments just
to make sure there's no cancer cells somewhere else in
He's still in the hospital - will hopefully get to come
home tomorrow....I can tell he's feeling better today -
he's getting very fidgety and just a wee bit on the grumpy
Thanks for all the thoughts, prayers and encouraging words.
I'm sure we'll get over this little bump in the road just fine!
