Jack Update

Yesterday Jack had his ultrasound guided biopsy of his Thyroid nodule, which turns out to be a group of nodules or a goiter. It wasn't the funnest thing he has ever done (ouch!) and was somewhat complicated by the fact that almost all of his thyroid is located under his collar bone. But they had a good radiologist and the biopsy was successful.

What a blessing Jack's primary doctor is! He called today with the good news that the biopsy does not show cancer! The thyroid issues will have to be dealt with by an endocrinologist, but that will probably wait until after surgery.

The next step is Seattle again tomorrow to see the surgeon at Virginia Mason. More news to follow.

Thank you for praying. We all appreciate it!
