Hot damn.

Saw a doctor today--ear/nose/throat--about my thyroid.  My family doctor wanted a biopsy of parts of my thyroid, but the specialist says between the issues I've been having and my family history, it's coming out sooner or later, so when do I want it scheduled?

In the meantime, I'm back on my thyroid meds (same dose, but after a month and a half of nothing, it's a giant improvement that I can already feel).  I'm to stay on that dose until I get my thyroid removed, and they have to put me on a higher dose to make up for the loss.

I do feel better.  Better enough that I think I can get my classes' papers graded by Monday.

  1. The meds are working for my wife.

    Her level of whatever went from 29 down to around 5, so the Doctor is happy.

    She still gets fatigued easily, but says she "feels better".

    1. From what I've seen, in many cases, the "feels better" level gets hit before the consistent energy and stamina gets nailed.

      I am glad she's feeling better.
