Some will remember that my 18 year old daughter, Tegan, had to have half her thyroid removed back in April.
Good news... she's had a letter saying all is well. No cancer, nothing. Just a benign lump.
Has to have blood tests and follow-up appointments, but she's fine. It's taken ages because of CV-19.
And she's singing just as good as before.
I can't tell you how relieved I am
Wow, that’s awesome news. Thank you SO much for sharing that with us. I’m very happy for you and your daughter that all is well.
This is wonderful news, Bev. I was wondering about the possibility of cancer because I noticed that you didn't mention that the swelling was benign before. It's also great to hear that Tegan's voice hasn't been affected.
So glad to hear this. Hope she and all of yours continue well.
Your daughter is really fortunate that it was only a benign lump. I had a precancerous thyroid removed in 2010, and it has affected my life. First, it had a detrimental effect on my speech. After carrying on a short conversation with a colleague or friend, my voice would fade and I would become exhausted. Part of my job was reading aloud as we editors read to each other when proofing. I could no longer do that. It was very frustrating because being a former radio announcer and newscaster resulted in my having a very strong voice. My doctor prescribed speech therapy, which was embarrassing to go through. I can still sing, but not as well as I did before. I would not think of a solo anymore.
I hope that she continues to progress very well, but then the young usually do. Thanks for sharing the happy news with us.
Great news. Just great. The world needs singers more than ever!
So happy for you and Tegan. So nice to hear happy news, especially for a young person. Our young people are going through so much anguish and facing so much uncertainty.
That's a good news. A really good news. I know you do not like me, but I came here because this thing is serious, and you might like that people respond to this serious issue. Looking forward to rival you on a HubPatron 2.0 contest. :-)
Happy to read this post Bev, thanks for sharing the good news
Thank you Kierstin and Linda.
No we didn't know whether it was benign or otherwise. The possibility of cancer was made clear, but the consultant said it would be very rare in one so young. The longer we waited, the more I felt it would be okay. Otherwise they'd have called her back in long before now.
Thank you all so much.
Doris, I am so sorry you went through this. It must be horrible. This was a follicular adenoma which (after consulting Google) develops on, but not part of, the thyroid. She's still got the left side intact, so hopefully, it will function normally.
Great news! Happy to hear that. Wishing you both health and happiness always.
That's some great news, I can't imagine how relieved you guys must be feeling.
Yikes. I cannot imagine the agony of waiting weeks for results to come through. I had a basal cell carcinoma removed from my face a thousand years ago and the surgeon kept me on the table while he waited for the lab results; 30 minutes tops and I was good to go.
Anyway, I'm glad to learn that your daughter is fine. Best wishes.
Thank you all for your lovely responses. I really appreciate them. Have passed all your messages on to my girl.

I'm seeing an uptick in views the past few days, today being the best. I'm wondering if anybody else is having this same thing happen? It's in both subdomains, but in my main one, views have doubled. Almost afraid to like it because it seems odd for my stuff at this time of...

I just had an idea: to get our minds of all the bad news the media presents us with how about we have a thread in which people can post any good news they come upon? And it can be personal, national or international news!My good news of the day was finding out that the UK government says it is not...
