So I am 3.25 years out from my total thyroidectomy. I have been keeping all of my levels right where the dr wants them, which actually means I am tired a spacey a lot, but no cancer has returned to this point. It's time for my yearly test. This year with a difference. I do not have to have a full body scan. I will go to the big city for two shots and then just have a blood test. Keeping my fingers crossed. I need to be coming to med help more often. I am hopeless about tracking things and there are some good tools here.
A year and a half ago, I was deemed to have type 2 diabetes, but lost weight and have kept off 40 of the 50 lbs I lost. After they changed my medicine dosage, weight loss came to a screaming halt and I really have to get back on that bandwagon.
Last October, I became a grandmother. My first grands and yes, we got twins. A boy and a girl. the pregnancy was a difficult one for my daughter. Preclampsia, the babies came a little early but not too bad. Jen is doing well now. So happy for her. so busy. It takes all of us to take care of these little joyful bundles. But they are well on their way and so awesome.
work is just crazy. I work an hour from home and I work lots of OT. so not a lot of time for fun. But mostly life is good and seemingly normal after thyroidectomy. I still hate not having a thyroid, but I'm living with it and doing well. : )
