52 Blessings - Week 6

This week I am grateful that Mike has had successful surgery. For eight months he has not been feeling well. He has been complaining of dizziness, shortness of breath and fatigue. The doctors finally figured out that he had a growth on his thyroid that needed to be removed. Last Friday he had surgery that took over three hours. It was only supposed to take 1 1/2 hours. The nurses kept coming out to assure me everything was O.K. The growth ended up being as big as a tennis ball and going down into his chest area - no wonder he couldn't breathe! He stayed in the hospital for three days and has been taking it easy since then. He has never had surgery before and I did not like seeing him in a hospital bed. I am so grateful everything went O.K. This is another reason I have not been posting. We have been a little busy.

I'm grateful too. It was about time he felt better...I thought he was just faking it. Did he get to keep it and put it in a jar?

WOW! I'm glad Mike is doing ok. Good thing the doctors found out what was wrong! Poor guy!
