Cancer

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.
