Hi All,

    Pete is home and doing well! He had surgery on 10/15 and was able to come home the same day. He reports little pain but rather more stiffness. If any of you were to actually know Pete, you'd know that when the doctor told him to take it easy for 2 weeks, he laughed. With that being said, I had ordered tickets for the 3 of us to attend a concert to see Buddy Guy at a venue about 60 miles away prior to knowing that Pete even had cancer. The concert was on 10/16. Second row, center tickets....Pete said there was no way he was going to miss it so off we went to dinner and the concert the day after his surgery! He was so happy to be there and I was sure he was going to be in immense pain the following day, but no...he's good! Yesterday we went to see the oncologist and found out that the thyroid cancer was metastatic into some lymph nodes however the pathology/histology shows that there were clear margins which means it did not spread beyond that point. Currently we do not know the plan moving forward. Pete needs another ultrasound to see if he will need radiation.

I am thankful, so thankful for the good news!
