Hi Everyone,

   Thanks for all the love! Pete had the completion of the thyroidectomy today. The surgeon reports that surgery went well however, after the surgery they had trouble regulating his blood pressure which was sky high. Additionally, they wanted to keep him overnight to monitor the calcium levels to make sure the parathyroid wasn't going to freak out...that can lead to problems with the heart.

He is expected to come home tomorrow to begin the healing process and the radiation bit is to come...I don't know the timeline just yet.

And Thanksgiving....it was going to be a potluck for family and a few friends. We are to take the turkey, squash and my homemade cranberry sauce has been requested. The fact of the matter is, if Pete is not feeling up to it, we won't go but I will still deliver the food. I do not have to return to work until December 2nd. I am very happy to be able to stay home with Pete. :)

Jeremiah is doing fairly well with all of this. We have explained this to him as best we can and I am quite proud of him.

Sweet dreams all.

Michelle
