Well folks, the moment you have all been waiting for is here..... I, Jeremy, am guest blogging. Please be kind as I have never done anything quite like this.

Now down to business. Clara's surgery went really well, there were no complications, the lymph nodes were all clean, no spread of the cancer...textbook operation. The post-op is a different story though. Clara was supposed to be discharged friday morning but her calcium levels (calcium in essential in your body's electrical system) dropped drastically and she had to be put on an IV two nights running. This is not all together unexpected since the parathyroid (which control the calcium levels) are attached to the thyroid they can become "bruised" during surgery and take a few days to recover. As it stands right now they are saying she may be able to come home Monday morning. Not to worry though because Clara looks fantastic, is in wonderful spirits, and dying to get back home to post pictures of her scars (all i know how to do is type).

I'll try to keep you all up-to-date, Jeremy
