As mentioned earlier—most recently at the bottom of my latest WYD post—blogging is light this week for health reasons. My health is normally great when I can take my thyroid hormone, but I currently have to be off the hormone until after my August 19-21 hospital stay. (Thanks to your and others' prayers, I am in considerably brighter spirits than when I wrote in detail about what's happening. Short version: Doctors think they got all my cancer when they removed my thyroid, but I need to receive radioactive-iodine treatment as a precaution.) Thanks again for your prayers, which are enabling me to get through this time of lessened energy far better than I had thought I would.
