Happy Dance!!


Sand Key, Florida

I just got back to Kansas City a few hours ago. Before I crash, I wanted to tell you the great news. I did have a benign parathyroid tumor!! It was 10 to 12 years old. Surgery to remove it was a success. My life will be soooo much better in a few weeks. I can't wait! Thank you for all of your prayers and concern. I am so touched by reading your comments.

Many thanks go to Dr. James Norman, Dr. Douglas Politz, Dr. Arnold Goodman, and their staff for giving me my life back. Words cannot express my gratitude. Thank you , thank you , thank you!

Here is their website regarding parathyroid disease. Check it out if you have it or know of someone who does. http://parathyroid.com/

I will post more Florida photos later. Now off to rest.
