Seven days after undergoing a thyroidectomy, Brooke Burke-Charvet has cause for celebration: She's cancer free!

"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," the Dancing With the Stars co-host writes in a new entry on her ModernMom.com blog. "So I'm hoping that this is the end of the story. Woohoo!!! And thank GOD!"

Burke-Charvet says her recovery following the December 6 procedure has been "much better than I expected it would be."

"I've been home for the past week, watching a lot of TV, which I never do," Burke-Charvet, 41, writes. "I've almost made it through the entire season of Showtime's . . . Homeland. I can't remember the last time I lost myself in someone else's story."

Continues the married mom of four, "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 . . . In a weird way, it's kind of the perfect ending to a very busy year. I've taken the rest of the year off to recover and catch up with my family and now we're just celebrating life."
