Hello all! I hope everyone had a great 4th! The weather was spectacular throughout and Friday night, I had the thrill of a lifetime tossing out the first pitch at the Bison's game !! I got it over the plate, no booing!

Anyway, I thought I'd get you caught up on the health front.

I announced on the show today that tomorrow morning, I have surgery to remove my thyroid. I learned months ago-at the same time the breast cancers were found, that I also had a touch of thyroid cancer as well. It is called a papilloma and it is highly treatable. In fact, it could wait the 6 months to remove, after the double mastectomy and the chemo. But now it's time for it to go. I should only be in the hospital overnight or two days max, then I'll return to work on July 18th. Now the real I wear my wig to surgery or shock the heck out of the O.R. staff? I guess I'll just wait and see how I feel.
Be kind to Jon Summers and John Disciullo..they will be carrying on for me until I return..both doing at least one or two other full-time jobs! Have a great July..and thank you all for the good wishes and prayers. It really helps!! xx me
