Tomorrow my mom starts her radioactive iodine treatment for her thyroid cancer. She won't be able to work for a couple weeks, can't be around anyone under the age of 18 for three weeks (which obviously includes my niece), has to sleep in a separate room from my dad for awhile, can't prepare food, needs to be six feet away from dad while in the same room, etc. So, as you can imagine, it's not ideal. But it could be a lot worse. Mom will have to do another round of the radioactive iodine treatment in another six months to a year. Just keep her in your thoughts and prayers. I'm sure she'll be doing a lot of reading but I know she'll get bored.

I know nothing about radioactive iodine in people, but I've had several cat patients that had the treatment done. They all handled it very well, and it was very effective. The isolation was the hardest part for them.

I hope everything goes great for her!

Amy, I will pray for your mom -- I remember your telling me about this before. It will definitely be a challenge for everyone involved. God's peace to you, your mom and family.

Lots and lots of good thoughts and prayers to you and your mom. I'll ask my mom to include her in her prayer ministry group also. We'll get you through this!

Thinking of you!
