Today my eldest daughter received good news.
Drum roll: The specialist at OHSU told her that the results of her CT SCAN were "boring." A clever way of saying that there was nothing suspicious found in her body following the removal of her malignant tumor and thyroid.
As a result of the clean scan she will receive only the "precautionary" radioactive iodide treatment.
Karmyn said she's been feeling good, and she can handle the short duration of discomfort and inconvenience that the therapy will induce.
Thanks to all of you who sent up prayers and positive thoughts.
