Second Photo Essay Submission: Droopy Roses

My husband had good intentions when he bought me roses to help me feel better after my 150mc RAI post-thyroidectomy. But the roses got zapped by the RAI!

The smile…the thumbs down…the droopy roses…it all shows the mix of emotions that have followed me through my 11-yr journey w/thyca.
