The visit with the endocrinologist went well, in that there is nothing to be done at this time. She told me I had no doubt had the problem with the thyroid for many years and showed me test results from 2013 where the numbers spiked a bit but went back down by the next test. I will have blood tests every six months from now on rather than yearly. In the meantime she wants to find out why I'm anemic. I wish I liked red meat but I don't.
So I will have follow up visits, and probably more tests than I'd like - I'm already scheduled for a Dexa scan for bone density - but it could be much worse. I feel pretty good right now, and am still feeling the happiness, so I'm just grateful for the good things and good people in my life. I very much appreciate the support I've received from so many blog readers.
I went to the gym straight from the doctor's office, and was a bit early for Jeannie and Ara. I finished my workout and left before they did, but I did get to chat with them for a while.
I think I'll just stop here and hope I have something to write about tomorrow that isn't necessarily health related. I am tired of feeling tired, and really want to resume my former pace of life, if that is even possible.
I hope everyone has a good evening and a great tomorrow!
