Follow up visit

This afternoon Thelma had her follow up with the surgeon. Everything was good. She still has some swelling but he said that will go down in about another month. He said biopsy came back negative.That  was good. She had a nodule on her thyroid That is why they had to take part of it. Now in Jan she sees the Dr that sent her to the surgeon to see how her levels are doing. Think that is around the 17 or so. After that we hope to head south. We had a little snow during the night but nothing on the roads around here. They had a couple of schools closed in Jay and Wells county which are SE of us. Well guess that is it for tonight. We are pretty boring when we are not camping. We wish all of you a Blessed Christmas and a Happy New Year.    Ron Thelma and Eli

She is doing better today. She took some pain pills during the night. She slept pretty good. She is still pretty week. She sees the surgeon next Fri. Want to ask some questions then. Got our Christmas cards ready today. Will mail tomorrow. Guess that is it for tonight  Thanks for all the prayers and well wishes.

Surgery over.

Just got home from the hospital about30minutes ago. Held the dog for bit and then got on here. The surgery last4hrs. was to be only 2. They took out3 of the para-thyroid glands. One was still okay. Also about half of her thyroid. They kept her overnight as the surgery lasted so long.They took her back about 1:30 but we did not see the Dr till 5:30. Made for a long afternoon. She most likely will come home tomorrow. I will go back up around 9 in the morning. hope she has a good nights sleep.Will update tomorrow after she comes home. Later Ron Thelma and Eli. He is not happy that Mommy is not here.

Catch up time

I seem to have trouble keeping up with this blog. Not much going on. Yesterday we went to a funeral for a cousin. I think 3rd. I remember when my Mom passed he asked me where all the cousins were. Well a lot of them are gone. I told Thelma that I was making sure one was going to be there. He had been in a nursing home for 4 years so it was a blessing. Got to talk to some of the cousins at the dinner after. Since he had served in WW2 they placed an American flag on the casket as we went to the cemetery. They then folded it at the end and gave it to his wife. That is always so great to see. We have had all our leaves picked up by the city. Today I had the neighbor guy come over and help me put in a couple of new bibs for the washer hoses. One of the hoses got a hole in it and when I tried to take it off it broke. So had to replace them. He has all the tools. He is getting up in years so don't know what I will do when he is gone. He gave me a couple pipe wrenches. big ones. I have one smaller one. Well guess that is it for now. Gary our son has surgery for gall bladder on Fri and Thelma has surgery a week from Wed. Busy times.  Later all Ron Thelma and Eli
