Some good news!

Well, our son had his appointment with the surgeon yesterday. The news was very encouraging.
Surgery is scheduled for late March or early April. The tumor is very small - 5 mm. therefore the surgery will be fast and easy. They will operate by making four little incisions, lasso the adrenal gland and pull it out. He should be in hospital no more than a couple days and back to work in a week or so. He will have to start replacement therapy two to three weeks before the surgery.
The surgeon seems confident that it will go very smoothly. He will have to wear a medic alert bracelet from now on, but that is a very small price to pay.
The thyroid is being re-evaluated and may not be an issue.

I want to thank you all for your prayers and best wishes. See what the power of prayer can do. My entire family has heaved a big sigh of relief.

Till next time, thank you so much everyone!!!!!
