hey everyone, some of you have read that I had my partial thyroidectomy on the 5th, and I just got out today. Everything went great- I already had my staples and my stitches taken out! Supposedly it was as difficult surgery because of my shorter neck, but I sure can't feel that. I feel great, although I do feel like a hunchback. And my neck is very stiff. I am so glad to be out of the hosptial though. Thanks to everyone for your support and resurring words!
