I am so sorry to hear about the thyroid cancer but thank goodness this is one type of cancer that so many people get and the outcome is curable...

My prayers and thoughts are with you.

Spoke to the Capt. She's resting in sick bay right now.... did get a giggle out of her... she really appreciates everyone's love and support.  Told her I'd check on her later and will send along Matthew McConnehey (however you spell it) dripped in chocolate (for you PBW gang, you know for what I speak! ;) ).

She's resting now.... and thanks everyone for being here for her.

She's lurking and saw this thread. Spoke to her today... spirits are better but her back is killin' her!  Let me tell ya about our fearless Capt... "fearless" is the key word. She's doing her homework, I made her giggle, we're substituting what's-his-name (the cute blonde dude) from "Lost" instead of Matthew McConnahey(sp?) and she's hanging tough.... truly! I'm feeling her show up here soon (when she's ready) but... do know she's lurking!

Yo! Capt!!!!!!!!  Do you want the dood from "Lost" drizzled in chocolate like Matthew was as long as you are stuck in sick bay? :)

xoxo

Phyl,

We are talking Sawyer!!!  Josh Holloway, he is definitely the man.  Good choice our only female moderator  ;)

Last night I re-watched the first season finale of Lost, and gosh he looks so good in a pair of wet jeans and nothing else. 

So glad to read our Capt is lurking,

To our lurking Captain ~

According to Phyl, your recovery seems to be well underway.  This is great news!  Cheers to you, Deb!

Jim
4.5 cm AN diagnosed 5/06.  Retrosigmoid surgery 6/06.  Follow-up FSR completed 10/06.  Tumor shrinkage & necrosis noted on last MRI.  Life is good. 

Life is not the way it's supposed to be. It's the way it is.  The way we cope with it is what makes the difference.

Hi Deb,

Sorry, I have been absent for a while and I know you are our (PBW) leader but no need to trial everything before the crew does, I mean AN's, back problems, and now thyroid cancer.

On a serious note, as Jim has stated, this is very treatable these days but make sure you get some massage going on your back

Lots of love and hugs
