Hi, Helen Sweetie!

I'm hanging in as well.  I'm getting my results tonight after 7:00 p.m.  I'll let you know what happens!  As for you, young lady, you WILL BE FINE - Don't be swayed by the sympathetic look from a tech.  If they saw "something", they certainly would not let you wait until September!  I pray your way everyday, Helen!  You're going to be a beautiful bride one month from tomorrow!!!!  Yayyyyyy!!  Stay strong and ride this "wave" like you ride the surf you love so much!!!

Love to you,

Shari

Hey Hel!  How are you is a better question?  Feeling O.k. I hope!!!  Still swelling, but I really wonder if it is my artery.  Going back to the dr on Tuesday, so we will see.  I posted some pics of my CT from June and I really think it is my artery (right beside my swollen thyroid) that is swelling more.  I wonder.  The ENT said he *thought* he felt a nodule now, so maybe I will be having another US soon.  I don't know.  Much love to you!  I hope you are doing GREAT.  Hugs ~Kim

Hey Hel!  Thanks for your uplifting post!  I guess it all worked as I am very excited to say that I DID NOT  have surgery today!!! Went in and they could no longer find the nodule!  GOD IS AMAZING!  I hope you are doing well.  What was the docs thought on you chest pain during RAI?  I hope that means absolutely nothing and that I will be well for you.  I know you have had such a hard time.  It's time for your body to let you get to the fun of wedding planning and anticipating good things instead!  Hugs, love, prayer, AND ALL MY THANKS!  ~Kim

Just a quick note to say hi!  Thanks for the info on your thyroid journey!  It gives me great insight.  I am now dealing with yet another finding - something in my breast on mammo.  The doc thinks it is probably benign.  Still waiting on the official reading.  Medical mysteries are better left to TV and I want an answer.  I am sure you can relate to that.  I hope you are feeling better really soon.  Keep me up to date my friend, want to see you up and surfing soon! ~Kim

Hey Hel!  Are you busy wedding planning yet??  How are you feeling since not on meds?  Can I ask one more question??  I was wondering how long it took for your thyroid to grow to the size of your pics?  My swelling is no longer going away, but it is not really getting bigger either.  I still have no hard lumps either. Just wondering.  Hope you are doing o.k. through hypo to RAI!  Much love and prayer ~Kim

Hey! I am  much better. The weather is just really hot here in the 90's and humid.
I read in one of your post that you are going to Orlando for your honeymoon. Well you may know that Cocoa Beach, FL is about 30 miles east of Orlando and it's a famous surf spot.  My family tries to visit there 1-2 times a year. We went in January, but have not made the trip this summer. It's about 9 hours from where I live. My husband is big time into the space program so he usually visits the Kennedy Space Center which is next to Cocoa Beach on Merritt Island.I love to go on cruises from Port Canaveral which is next to Cocoa Beach also.
Here is a link to a site with a web cam. Let me know if the link does not work there are many others.

Hey Hel! The swelling is still going on although not to the extent it was.  Thankfully, the steroid and anti-inflammatory have done there job so the inflamation in the carotid artery is resolving (this was the reason for the upper neck swelling).  Now, only the thyroid swells and it usually is present in the a.m. and goes to a kind of comfortable by mid day.  It is still not that noticeable to anyone but me, so I guess it is very small to begin with, just uncomfortable.  Hey, I had a question for you, when you noticed your growing thyroid, did you have symptoms of hypo or hyper or just the swelling?  Just wondering.  I just worry that since all of the shotty glands showed on CT and the fact that I have slight swelling under the jaw too, well, you know.  I am so happy you are doing well!

Hi, no results back from the bloods yet - but I have a sneaking feeling that they are going to show 'within normal ranges' as per usual!!  Not that I want anything wrong but I get so fed up feeling yucky and being told I'm 'fine'.  Oh well - we'll see.
I'll have a look at your post and see whats up.  text or call me anytime if youare worried

Just a quick note to say hi! Good to hear your appointment went well.  You will be well rested at least, during your isolation period.  Good luck on the LID and with the RAI.
