i got the news that the uptake was within normal limits (whatever that means) and it looks like it is not auto-immune disease afterall (no Graves disease.) just a regular ole' goiter. i hate that word. sounds so...weird. no cold nodules which is FAN-FLIPPIN-TASTIC!! so i return to taking my thyroid medication and wait for it to do it's thing.
all i know so far is that there aren't any cold nodules reported on my scan. (my vicki-our records lady-) was able to tell me that much. but the full report is on dr. yousuf's desk and i should know something this afternoon. she is actually pretty good to call me herself. and i know she wants to see me back in her office (which she is leaving our practice and going to one the next town over pretty soon.) so for those test results so far, we are extremely thankful. and i already know i'll never be able to thank you for each and every prayer you lift up for me and my family. (and a side note, ally claire "detached" her frenulum between her gums and 2 front teeth yesterday when she hit her precious mouth on a drawer pulling up. so please pray it "reattaches" soon!! will let yall know more later today.
