Ultrasound

Grace's ultrasound went well today. She cooperated well, and she wanted to watch the screen as the radiologist rolled the wand around on her neck. Charlie held her neck, and I held her hand. She was really good. We're proud of her.

The great news is that her thyroid gland is in the correct location. The radiologist also felt that the cyst was a thyroglossal duct cyst as well. So there seems to be a consensus. :) At its biggest measurement, the cyst was 13 mm. I think that is correct measurement, at least.

At the end of the visit, Grace got to pick out a stuffed animal. She chose a cute horse.

So Grace is now all set to have her ENT doctor schedule the surgery. We'll wait to hear when it will be scheduled. There probably won't be another update for a few days.

I'm glad to hear she did so well at the appointment, and that there is a consensus on things. Keeping you both in my prayers until your next update -- big hugs to the two of you!

Hi, my name is Sarah and I have a four year old daughter, Hannah, with a similar lump on her throat. I just noticed it last week and we went to see her family doctor last Friday. She seemed stumped, not too concerned(more perplexed) and sent her for an xray. She had the xray that afternoon and I guess we wait and see. I was happy to find your site after seeing what was out there on line. I am glad to see that your daughter is receiving great medical care and wish her all the best with the surgery. Thank you for sharing Grace's story.
