Hi! I couldn't stay away. This will be quick. I had a dose of radiation today and I feel nauseated and tired. There's also the taste of metal in my mouth, but I was able to eat just a few moments ago. I do not have to go to the hospital for anything tomorrow, but on Friday, I will have one more injection and then a whole body scan.
A tumor was removed from my throat in September of 2005 that initially tested as benign. However, once it was sent to the lab, cancer cells were present so I had another surgery two weeks later to remove the entire thyroid. Six weeks later I began radiation to remove any possible thyroid tissue that may have been left behind.
I am now resuming the remaining of the radiation and annual scan that should have been taking place 6-12 months after the initial one. However, I was pregnant with our third and therefore could not continue. Now that I am done nursing "Janelle", the doctors thought it would be best to resume.
I know this is short and you all may have some questions but I really will do a "full coverage" in a later post. Right now I just wanted to check on you all and give an update. Just this small amount of time on the computer has made me a little more nauseated. Oh, Anton was able to get the week off and my mother is here with us, I am so very grateful. Thank You Father for taking care of us!
"See y'all later"
Oh yeah, one more thing, I don't have to stay overnight, I was able to come home!!!
