Today is surgery day for me….as you are reading this I am at the hospital or on my way soon. If you haven’t been following the blog, I am having my thyroid removed. After finding large nodules on my thyroid, testing them and not getting clear results I’ve opted to have it removed rather than deal with bi-annual testing and procedures.
(I went to find an online image to pop in here so googled thyroid removal not thinking….Let’s just say I shouldn’t have looked at those images. I didn’t think you wanted to either so instead I typed in the hospital and got that image instead…much better right?)
Anyway, this is where I am…I feel really comfortable here. With our location we have the options of going to several different large hospitals…Covenant or Allan in Waterloo are both closer. Mayo in Rochester is well, MAYO CLINIC…but we opt to go to Lacrosse. We have loved it here.
We have gotten very good care. The staff have all been very personable and helpful.
We love that the town is much easier to drive in than the other options. Parking at Mayo is always a pain…here, it’s a breeze and best yet, there is no charge.
We’re happy here and feel very confident with our decision to come here again. All the other times it’s been for Hubby and I’ve done time in the waiting room. This time, we’re taking opposite rolls. I guess that we’re covering the “sickness and health” aspect of our wedding vows.
I have a couple blog posts scheduled for the next couple of days but I promise either Kelli or I…or maybe even Kayla will pop in and let you know how I’m doing tomorrow.
Thanks for all the notes, well wishes and prayers being sent my way. I’m hoping for a speedy recovery from the surgery and a quick adjustment to the meds.
