To our family and friends:

We would first like to thank you all for your very generous support, your thoughts, and your prayers. This whole process has been made easier for us by having such a strong support group. We are very grateful to everyone who has reached out in thought, word, and deed. God bless you all.

Here is an update on Michael's cancer. We traveled back to Burlington for the post op last week and met with Dr. Brundage, the surgeon who performed the procedure. He was pleased to share the pathology report with us, as there were no surprises. As was expected, there were a couple cancerous nodules in the thyroid, seven cancerous lymph nodes surrounding, and cancer in the cyst. All were successfully removed during the surgery. The next phase is a two step radioactive iodine treatment in a few months. Since the cancer had definitely spread outside the thyroid, the team wants to make sure to locate any thyroid cells that might have been missed and eliminate them with radioactive iodine. We have not met with the endocrinologist yet, but it is our understanding that this process is less taxing and painful than chemo and radiation for other cancers. Once that step is over, the only thing that remains is routine biannual checkups.

Michael's recovery is going very well. In a matter of two weeks he has gone from almost complete immobility to being cleared for return to work tomorrow, June 9th. Thanks be to God!

We are so happy with the care we have received at the hands of Dr. Brundage and his team and the nurses and staff at University of Vermont Medical Center. We only wish we could thank them all personally.

With Heartfelt Gratitude,
Michael and Amy
