For all the ladies that sent projects …thank you!!! I appreciate you sending projects and keeping my blog active during and after my surgery.   I'm sorry you didn't win but you can expect a little something from me at the end of next month (October).

Mary Matthys was the runner up and it was so close ….. and I just can't help myself … even though I didn't say this before …I'm going to reward the 2nd place person with $50.  Mary, please email me what you'd like.

Congrats Lori & Mary!!! 

Now to the subject of my surgery and the results …. I posted it on my personal blog but some of you never saw that post so I'll add it here …. The long story short is the thyroid diagnosis is papillary micro carcinoma.

The doctor said that the cancer was removed and that there's a very small chance it would return. Because of the small risk he said we would check it with an ultrasound in 6 months.  Only about 20 out of 800 get it back so my chances are good!! 

I'm doing better every day …. but I'm so tired I can't think straight!  That may even be an understatement!! 

I'm trying to get caught up on email but I really need your patience.   I just returned Tuesday and it takes a while to get through 3,000 emails!!!  I'm also working on this months Stamp Club projects and I'm happy to report I made something I think is really cute!!  Now it's time to film the video, edit it, type the instructions and post it (and advertise it). 

Thanks for everything … see ya tomorrow!
