Brother Robert, I don't know if this would help, but Pastor Tim, a wonderful brother, has a daughter who had this problem as a teen.
This is his Site http://www.cybersalt.org/cleanlaugh/
And this is the Forum where at the time, back then, he posted the pictures after her surgery etc. - [url=http://www.cybersalt.org/component/option,com_joomlaboard/Itemid,139/func,view/id,32/catid,10/]If you'd like to contact him -[/url] he's a very dear brother and answers emails promptly enough or you could post there.
He knows all about thyroid problems.
With our prayers for you both. Jesus is good!

May God in His loving kindness, and tender mercies, reach down and heal you Anna, by the stripes of His Precious Son, Jesus Christ.
May He strengthen you, Robert, and bring both of you forth stronger in Him, and the Power of His might.

We are praying. We serve a God for whom all impossibilities are possibilities. My wife and I are sharing this request with other believers.

Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven.

They have scheduled Anna for surgery on Nov. 30th as the hospitals are filled up with surgery and they feel the cancer is slower growing. We thank God that we heard today the cancer is not one of the more dangerous types. It still 'might' be malignant, but because the thyroid cancer cells upload iodine, they can give a iodine with an isotope to kill only those thyroid cells. She is not out of the woods by any means, but we praise God for a brighter outlook.
An additional concern is that Anna has suffered with post partum cardiomyopathy resulting in congestive heart failure (30% EF) since 2000, and has improved until she is now at 40% EF (55%+ is normal). This heart condition potentially complicates any surgery.
Thanks again for all the prayers and words of encouragement.

My dear brother
My love to you both at this time. What a joy to have been able to meet face to face after all these years (and emails). You will be much in my thoughts and always in my heart.
Please assure Anna of my love and prayer.
