I really don't think you asked a harsh question, I've been going over that myself. I'd like to keep living, but I can't believe I reached this age anyway. So it's a good question. Do I take the treatment and hope I keep living longer than if I didn't take the treatment, or do I not take the treatment. I guess the first step would be to take a fine needle aspiration. If that comes up with cancer cells, then I know it should come out. As it was explained to me, if that comes up w/cancer cells, they will take the whole thyroid out. (oh, well…)

I think you are thinking well. I am living pretty well without my thyroid but I'll admit it is not perfect. Nothing in my body is working perfectly. As you say, "oh, well". My mind is still keeping me going. I played three pieces at church yesterday. Dorisena
