Brooke Burke-Charvet underwent surgery yesterday for thyroid cancer and tweeted “Last looks at my neck. Here we go ” ahead of the procedure. Burke-Charvet is now resting and recovering and can even talk. “I’m resting, recovering. Surgery went well. Dr Adashek is a genius. Thx Dr! Feels like I got hit my a car :(. Thank God it’s over. I’m clean, surgery went well & I can talk. Losing My voice was my biggest fear. Thx for all your prayers & light.”
Burke-Charvet discussed on Modern Mom about telling her children about her diagnosis and surgery.
I decided not to tell my children about my diagnosis for as long as I possibly could because I didn’t want them to worry. I know that my younger ones still don’t have a great concept of time and I didn’t want them to be anxious, worried and asking 1,000 questions.
My 12-year-old overheard a conversation that I was having regarding my diagnosis so I had to tell her first. She was really scared and concerned. She cried, and her biggest fear was if I was going to be ok.
