An Ally Update...


This is Ally's Mom just letting everyone know that her surgery is now over and she is fine.

The surgeon was very pleased with the outcome of the surgery and Ally's progress. The entire thyroid has now been removed but there will be a follow-up treatment after to ensure that all the bad cells are dead and won't cause any more problem.

One of the side effects of this surgery is fluctuations in calcium, B12 as well as thyroid hormone levels. Ally is being given supplements now to get these back into the normal range. Once that is stabilized and the surgeon feels she has recovered sufficiently from the surgery, she will be able to come home from the hospital ~ it may be as early as Friday if things continue to go smoothly.

I am sure she will be looking forward to visiting you all again as soon as she is able!
