Today, March 27 I had my 6 month follow-up ultrasound to look at my questionable nodule that was found two years ago on my thyroid. It is growing and the doctor is becoming more concerned and has not changed his recommendation of having surgery. They were unable to tell from my biopsy two years ago if it is cancer so surgery is the only medical answer according to my doctor. Only 20% of these type of nodules are cancer. So here we are at this place ….decision to have surgery or not.
I am going to talk to my naturopathic doctor and see what else I need to be doing. My diet is going to become even more strict and I am going to depend upon the Lord to help me to be even more disciplined in that area.
No one wants to have surgery but that is not my main concern. Since my oldest sister had thyroid cancer and has been on thyroid hormone she has never been the same. I could give you a list of things that are a result of not having a thyroid. Medication is never an equal replacement for a body part ~ even though doctors say it is. I simply don’t want to remove something out of me if it’s not cancer and since most nodules are benign I personally don’t want to have the surgery.
So for now we are choosing for me to not have surgery. I don’t want to make an unwise decision based upon feelings. We are going to continue to seek the Lord and His direction in this.
God has brought healing to all the other problems I was having with my thyroid and I am asking for healing concerning this.
I am thankful to have gone into this appointment knowing that whatever God had for me today would be the very best for me because it would be what would bring Him the most glory. So leaving the nodule and allowing it to grow is best. Nothing really changed for me today because I know that He never changes. Just as I was to depend upon Him yesterday for everything ~ that same grace to depend is there for me today.
He makes All things beautiful in His time.

Thank you all who are praying for us. We do not take that for granted and we thank you so much. It truly is an expression of love to lift each other up in prayer to our Lord. Thank You!
