Ms.Thyroid, as seen by my close friend, fiber artist Marisa Allen. Don’t we look sweet together? Marisa carefully pin-tucked her so she’d be extra lumpy.
Thyroid Surgery Round 2

I had surgery on 2/26/10 to have the rest of my thyroid removed. I felt it was pressing on my wind pipe again and making me cough and wheeze. Surgery took about 4 hours because my thyroid was so entangled in my neck. The doctor also found a grape sized cyst unrelated to my thyroid that was pressing on my esophagus. Upon awakening in the hospital I could already breath better. I haven’t seen the scar yet, but I know there are stitches instead of staples this time.
