Oops, I Lost 5 Days!
Don't know where they went!! :D I have been to the doctor (GP) today, and got really good news! The iodine radiation treatment worked! Yeaaaa! Now the thyroid levels are too low, but according to my dr., this will be easily remedied by a simple little pill. I have to go back to the endocrinologist on Monday, and after seeing him, I will start some sort of thyroid medication. I have felt so much better this last week, and that's just been incredible. I've felt lousy for so long I had forgotten what it was like to actually feel good. And my dr. also said that once I start the medication, it should give me more energy, and that I should drop this extra weight fairly easily. The weight gain has really bothered me cause all of my clothes are tooooo tight. But at least I know why I've gained, and there's relief in sight!! LOL Randy left for Chicago this morning. He won't be back until Sunday night. I have big plans to get some cleaning and straightening up done around here. THEN I want to sew. I have my second Whig Rose block ready to work on; I've just been waiting until I got him out the door. :) I've been planning to spend time in my sewing room while he's away, but you know about the best laid plans, and all of that...well, Badger (one of my two wienie dogs) has come up lame again. Every Spring is a bit apprehensive for me (since 2002) because every May he has another disc go in his back. Only this time it's hit him earlier than usual, and I've been carrying him wherever he needs to go, and locking him in the large pet carrier if I have to be gone. I started him on Prednisone again yesterday. That, plus caging him for 4-6 weeks, usually pulls him out of it. He doesn't want me out of his sight, so it makes it more difficult to actually go in my sewing room and stay there. I may end up doing more applique than anything the next few days. I have some pictures (not quilty, tho) that I want to post but haven't uploaded them from the camera yet. I'll do that later today.
