Post Op!

Thursday morning I had my surgery and all went well. Thankfully I don't remember much. I was having a bit of anxiety before hand. All the people and the idea of it was just making me really anxious.

My surgeon says that everything went according to plan. He was able to feel the lump inside my thyroid when he took it out. We'll find out Monday what the pathologist has to say about what it was. Depending on what they have to say I might need some radiation. For now they have me on thyroid replacement and some calcium supplements because my calcium dropped pretty low the evening of my surgery.

I have a pretty major sore throat from having the air tube down my throat during surgery, and the surgical area is still pretty sore but I'm doing pretty well! I feel like since I'm home I should be doing something useful. Mostly I feel bad for not being able to carry baby around. He just wants to be held! Poor guy!
