All Clean Jelly Bean!

You'll all be happy to know that I just took my first shower since the surgery. It felt really good to stand under the hot water although it's quite difficult to do so without getting my neck wet. My post-op instructions indicated that I could shower a day after the surgery but to take special care not to get the incision wet. I did my best. You might be wondering about the incision...it's about 4 inches long and is bruised all around. You can't really see the exact incision because it's covered up by some tape (scary to think that I'm being held together by a piece of tape).

I met a girl online who had thyroid cancer and had the same endocrinologist and surgeon that I have. She's doing very well and has beaten her cancer. She's supposed to e-mail me later to tell me more about her treatment and recovery. I'll let you know what she says.

Each day, I feel a tiny bit better. I'm still quite sore and obviously get tired very easily. I'm ready for my nap and all I've done is shower! This is what they mean by taking it easy, I guess?!

If you're feeling better and bored, you can always volunteer this afternoon at the New Life Thrift Store, 4802 Charlotte Avenue.

Or any afternoon. Anne, we're ALWAYS looking for volunteers and donations. However, we don't take the LARGE appliances. Uh huh. That's right.

Poor Anne's in bed and it's no joke,
she's had instructions not even to croak.
From the e-mail info she's transmitted,
we knew at once that she's committed -
to beat this worrying and terrible thing and get well soon, so Peter will bring -
Alexander home to greet his Mom,
with hugs all round for everyone!
