The surgery is done but I still have to undergo radiation. Luckily with this kind of cancer I don't have to do scans or chemo, I just have to be quarantined in a hospital room for three days while I take radioactive iodine pills to make sure they get those last few remaining cancer cells (if there even are any). As of September 7th, I have to be on a low iodine diet and as of 9/12 I have to be off of my thyroid medication to prepare for treatment. They have to make sure my hormone levels are low before I can start the radiation. This causes one to be extremely exhausted and fatigued among a few other temporary symptoms that won't allow me to work. If levels are where they should be I will be starting radiation on 9/26 and hopefully will be done and well by Micah's first birthday on 10/5. Micah will be getting a healthy mommy for his birthday.=) This sounds like a lot and I feel like I am prepared but I don't really know what to expect and I am just praying for peace through all of this and I am so excited to be cancer free and healthy!
I truly appreciate all of the prayers...please keep 'em coming and I will try to update as best as possibly as I go through this. God has a plan for everything and I know that He is making me stronger through what I am going through. Even though this is a VERY treatable Cancer, it's still Cancer and it's still scary but I know God is doing and will continue to do great things through this! And for that I am thankful!
