Sue, I've been reading about your food restrictions and what's allowed, and that you're gaining weight. It must be so discouraging some days... I so admire your strength and resolve. I realize that you don't have much choice! but you're not whining about how much it all sucks like so many people would.

Can you eat regular marshmallows when the Peeps are gone? Can you have tree nuts? Can you exercise? How are your husband and kids doing? I know they must be worried about you and sometimes that manifests itself in odd ways. Sorry to ask so many questions!

Sending *stay strong* vibes to help you get through this with good spirits.

Oh no Sue, that sounds miserable. Get plenty of rest this weekend. Your first iodine treatment is Monday right? Will be praying for you and hoping all goes well. In the meantime, hoping some food sounds good and you can eat at least something and hopefully get a little more energy. Love and prayers,

Hi Sue,


I just was reading about your experiences so far with thyroid cancer.

It actually varies from day to day!
