A QUICK UPDATE ON JOHN'S CANCER CHECKUP-

For those of you that missed
the update on 
FaceBook.

Just a quick note to say-

John is still cancer free.
He now goes from being scoped every 
FOUR weeks
to being scoped every
SIX weeks.

That is progress.

There is some concern that his 
THYROID is not functioning.
It is most likely damaged from 
all of the 
RADIATION.
But- Thyroids (or lack thereof)
can be regulated with meds.
That explains why he is 
SO EXHAUSTED
all of the time.

We were lucky enough to have our
LITTLE LULU
stay with us for four days
this past weekend.
She as as beautiful 
INSIDE as she is on the OUTSIDE.
We are blessed!


I am off to the VA 
this morning
and then coming home to pack for
a
LITTLE ADVENTURE.

I will fill you all in on that later!

  10. Diana, that is great news, NO CANCER is always a blessing to hear those words. Progress is being made in extending the time between checkups. YOur LuLu is not little anymore and just a beautiful girl. My husband (thehubs) is on thyroid medication after having thyroid cancer. We had a scare this year, his 5 year anniverary, but they are watching him closely and he will be retested again in April. We are blessed to have good health care through the VA and the Choice program they are using now. Thank you for your volunteering at the VA, I know that our veterans love the kindness the volunteers spread through the buildings. Have a great day and enjoy your upcoming adventure!

  58. Diana, I am so glad to hear that your hero is doing well. Yes, the thyroid can be treated. I had thyroiditis for a year meaning that my labs were up and down and could not be treated. Doctors said the inflamation would go away and my thyroid would become slow and I'd be treated for hypothyroidism. That's exactly what happened. So glad it wasn't the worse case senario. You are such a positive person. I know that has helped his recovery.
