“I just got the results back from all of my tests and great news – the thyroid cancer has been removed from my body and all my lymph nodes are clear,” Burke-Charvet writes Wednesday (Dec. 12). “So I’m hoping that this is the end of the story. Woohoo!!! And thank GOD! My surgery went really well and recovery is much better than I expected it would be.”
She continues, “I’ve been home for the past week, watching a lot of TV, which I never do. Having movie marathons and I’ve almost made it through the entire season of Showtime’s hit show ‘Homeland.’ I can’t remember the last time I lost myself in someone else’s story. It’s so out of the ordinary for me – to not be working or rushing from place to place driving the kids around. But I have to admit I could kinda get used to this. I’m starting to feel like a housewife, minus the household chores… not a bad gig.”
Burke-Charvet announced her cancer diagnosis in early November. She says a lump on her thyroid was detected during a routine physical.
“I didn’t want anybody to read about and get the wrong idea, or think that I’m sick, because I’m not,” she said at the time. “I feel really good. I’ve never felt better; that’s what’s so crazy about this whole thing.”
