I'm glad she's doing well.
I have a slightly amusing story about thyroid cancer. People in Pittsburgh know quite a bit about thyroid cancer because Mario Lemieux had it many years ago and recovered fully. He came back that year to win the Stanley Cup with the Penguins. We had a friend in his late 20's or early 30's at the time from Kentucky that used to hang out with us at parties. It was late at a July 4 party and there were only a few of us left, he being one. An aside, that particular party was the first time I laid a smooch on my wife. Back to the story. We were chatting and having a good time when our friend gives us the news he has cancer. We all stopped chatting and laughing and were saying the typical Oh-my-Gods and things. My future girlfriend/wife asked him what kind. He said, thyroid cancer. At the same time, we all said Oh, you'll be all right and started carrying on like nothing happened. He shouted, "It's still CANCER!" He ended up recovering fully from it. We still laugh about the scene like it was something from a sitcome or dark comedy.
In a free society, it is not the obligation of the citizen to prove to the government that he is a good person. It is the obligation of the government to prove to the rest of the citizenry that the citizen is a bad person, with probable cause.
