Jimmy's potassium level was up before his surgery today so they repeated the test and found the problem, so they asked the banana to leave his room....
She was an awfully cute banana though and was nice enough to let me take her picture.
Jimmy's thyroid surgery went better than expected today and he's home and looking as handsome as ever. The Pathologist did a frozen section at the time of the surgery and found no cancer, so the surgery was halted there with only the right lobe of the thyroid being removed. We're all extremely happy with the outcome and as you can see from Jimmy's smile in the picture below, so is he.
I took this picture of Jimmy when we got home. He went in for surgery this morning and we were home by early afternoon. I didn't even have time to get myself settled into the waiting room before they called and said that the surgery was over with. The surgeon had told Jimmy that if he looked good after he got out of the recovery room that he could go home, so Scott was there ready to paint some rosey cheeks on him with Sharon's makeup. I guess it worked.
Now the hard part begins...trying to keep Jimmy still and act like he's resting.
