I guess I've kind of surprised myself by not doing this earlier.  I'm not sure why I didn't.

Back in the middle of February my wife and I bought a new house.  15 hours later, we discovered that she had thyroid cancer.

We let the house deal fall through, there was no way we were going to deal with cancer treatment and move at the same time.  There is no way that we were going to allow that much stress into our lives.

It was a shock, but I came to terms with it.   It's a type of thyroid cancer called papillary thyroid cancer.  It has a high survival rate of  96 to 97%.

Anyway, her surgery is tomorrow, they will be performing a total thyroidectomy.  Wish us luck.


  1. John, sorry to hear about this. Good luck with the surgery on Monday and please keep us posted.  You and your family are in my prayers.

  2. I'm so sorry to hear this, John. I just prayed for the both of you and will continue to do so. As Bruce said, keep us posted.

  3. John - Really sorry to hear about this.  THinking of you both. 

  4. I am so sorry to hear, but it sounds positive with the high survival rate. I will be thinking about you and your wife today.

  5. Hey there,

    Hope everything goes well - keep us posted.  My paryers are with you and your family.


  6. Best of luck to you both.  I hope that all goes well today, and for the recovery.
