THANK YOU ALL for your encouraging words, thoughts, prayers, and cards!

Actually it wasn't my thyroid, it was one of the 4 parathyroids! One was very large, and removed..the other 3 are good so far. But believe me, I don't want to ever have to go thru this type of surgery again. Take care all,, and thanks again.... be back when I have a clear head...

This image is dedicated to our dear BP friend, Nancy Hovey,
who was just released from hospital after having a thyroid operation.

Nancy is the reason I joined BP!
When I first started posting, she gave me a warm welcome and
was always right there supporting me with her encouraging words.
Whenever I would think about leaving, she would remind me of
the wonderful friendships we have built in this great community!

Now, we are here for YOU, Nancyj (Mumj)!
We hold you close to our hearts and will keep you in our thoughts and prayers!
Hoping for a quick recovery and a good prognosis! :)

Have a great weekend everyone!!!!! :)
