Good morning... I'm a bit late getting started today, but it looks like it's going to be a beautiful day.
This past week has been pretty quiet in my world, though I did have a couple of appointments to deal with. I, first, had my chiropractor and ophthalmologist appointments on Monday. If you recall, It was determined that the openings in my cervical spine through which nerve endings pass have narrowed, causing nerve issues in my arms and back. The chiropractor was able to get my back into place a bit and she's working on my cervical spine to see if she can enlarge the openings to give nerve endings some relief. My back doesn't seem to itch quite as bad, but my arms haven't changed much. I know that all takes time.
My ophthalmologist appointment went very well. My cataract surgeries healed like they were supposed to and I got a script for progressive glasses, which should be in this week... WooHoo.
On Tuesday, I saw my endocrinologist. The meeting was quite contentious and he continued to refuse an adequate dose of thyroid hormones. He's not going to do anything with the suspicious thyroid nodule because it's < 1 cm and didn't want to see me again until May of next year... I don't plan to see him again at all because I really don't feel that a doctor's appointment should be so contentious and stressful.
I still have my air cast and knee scooter for my broken foot... I see the orthopedic doctor tomorrow and I'm hoping I'll be able to start walking on my foot a little bit more, and although it's feeling better, judging from the pain/swelling, my hopes may not be realistic.
I plan to find a different thyroid doctor, but have decided that I need to get some other issues resolved before I add another doctor to the mix. It seems that there's an "...ologist" for every part of the body and I seem to be seeing most of them. It's become mind boggling and I need to try to drop off a few of them as my whole life seems to consist of doctors and most of them are doing nothing helpful.
Anyway - weight-wise, I'm back to bouncing up/down as I normally do, which may be a good sign. With the continued swelling from my broken foot, it's hard to tell exactly what my weight is. Yesterday, it was the same as last week, so for right now, I'll go with that. I'm not looking for any big change in weight as long as I can't get out and exercise and/or get an adequate dose of thyroid hormones. Our neighbors did arrive back from Oregon yesterday, so as soon as I'm able, we'll begin our daily walks, which will, hopefully, help with, both the weight and the way I feel.
So - that's me. How was your week? I hope it's been everything you wanted it to be and look forward to hearing about it.
~~Wishing everyone a wonderful successful week~~
