Re: Thyroid Cancer

Had my post op doctor visit yesterday. The doctor was surprised that one of my vocal chords is damaged as he thought they had avoided that in the surgery. I can only speak in a whisper and because air leaks when I try to speak my speaking is labored and I am wiped out after a few sentances plus it hurts my throat. The doctor hopes this is temporary but hsa warned me it could be permanent. If it doesn't heal there are some medical procedures they can do to try and help. This issue also causes me to not be able to fully cough, clear my throat, etc and in short is pretty miserable.

Late yesterday the pathology report also came back from my surgery and sadly confirmed the diagnosis that the cancer is malignant. They did find cancer in at least some of the lymph nodes they removed. This was no surprise as based on the large size of the cancer on my thyroid they expected this.

My next step is to meeti with an endicrinologist to plan my radiation therapy that should happen in about six weeks. In the meantime I ended up at the ER last Sunday night with what turned out to be a magnesium deficiency. Watching football my neck then face had started tingling and my lips went numb which was on the list of post op notes to be on the lookout for and to call the doctor if they ocurred. The doctor on call had me go to the ER and I complied as the consequences if you don't get calcium or magnesium deficiency taken care of his irregular heart rhythm, etc. I had a magnesium infusion and have been ok since.

"We did not wear uniforms. The lady workers dressed in the current fashions of the day, ...silks...satins...jewels or whatever they happened to possess. They were very smartly turned out, so that they made an impressive appearance on the streets where a large part of our work was conducted in the early years.

"It was not until long after, when former Holiness preachers had become part of us, that strict plainness of dress began to be taught.

"Although Entire Sanctification was preached at the beginning of the Movement, it was from a Wesleyan viewpoint, and had in it very little of the later Holiness Movement characteristics. Nothing was ever said about apparel, for everyone was so taken up with the Lord that mode of dress seemingly never occurred to any of us."
