I am going into surgery on Monday, April 20 at 7:30 am.
My mom arrives on Saturday, April 18. She will be here until Saturday, May 9. She originally just wanted to be here 2 weeks, but that meant she would go home right before Jaxon's 1st birthday so we thought maybe she should stay a few more days. (I can't believe he will be one in less than a month!!! YIKES!)
I have an appointment scheduled with Dr. Edwards, the endocrinologist, on May 11. This is when he will give me more info on the rest of my treatment. I am expecting that the soonest I will go on the low-iodine diet & hypo thyroid, will be May 12. This means all I can eat is pretty much rabbit food and WINE! for 2 weeks. I am hoping to postpone the diet until Memorial Day weekend because school will be over by then and I would like to finish out the school year.
After those 2 weeks I will send Jax off to Tucson and I will take the radioactive iodine capsule and be in isolation for a week. That should be the end of it! I will be cancer free, God willing! Hopefully by the 4th of July I will be as good as new and maybe 10-15 lbs lighter after only eating veggies for a month :)
Keep those prayers and positive thoughts coming. I truly appreciate it.
