Mamma Cubb goes under the knife.

So today Mamma Cubb is having a thyroidectomy to remove a goitre. We’re currently waiting in the admissions lounge of Ward 3 South at Ealing Hospital for her to be admitted to the ward.

The process of getting here has had it’s ups and downs; from a chance diagnosis to surgery on, off, postponed and brought forward, but she has been treated well and kept well informed.

She had her final pre-op consultation with a lovely F1 on Tuesday who gave us all the time in the world to ask questions and set her mind at ease as to what is going to happen.
