Crippled on the Sofa (pt. 1)

Posted on: June 3, 2011, by :

For the past couple of weeks I have been recovering from a surgery and have been out of Internet reception (didn’t know that happened much in 2011 but it does).  My surgery was to remove a tumor on my thyroid as well as to remove a problematic lymph node.  Though I hadn’t quite noticed many ill effects from the growths, my doctor knew that it was necessary to tackle this problem immediately. 

I have had many people express concern about the fact that I haven’t said anything about this process in my journal, even though it has consumed Krystle and my waking moments over the past few months, and they are right.  I hesitated at the beginning to say anything here because I didn’t want to publicize my over-anxious concern before we knew anything definitive.   By the time we knew that my medical issues were as serious as they were, it seemed to be a little late…

Now that it is “all over,” I am going to take the next few days to let you know what went down.
