Friday I took Herself to the Endo. The doc sent the PA in instead - I guess she was afraid I'd go off on her after the cluster muck that was the NON-thyroid test. (I was good! Honest!) The PA confirmed my thoughts - he thinks Herself has Hashimoto's. Of course. :sigh: It does explain her symptoms; the panic attacks, the deep, bone-weary fatigue, the heavy cycles.....he said we would forgo the test and proceed as if it absolutely, positively IS Hashimoto's. (Because, while the test would confirm it, her symptoms are textbook, and he said there was no reason for attempt #*3* at this test.)
So, now what? We go back in 3 weeks, and he'll start her on the meds (which she'll be on the rest of her life, apparently). Fun times!
In better news, Himself got his braces off yesterday! His teeth are lovely! He goes back in 2 weeks to get his retainer, which he'll wear for 1 year or so. Herself is on track to get hers off in 2 visits - the next one to confirm she's done, then they wait 1 month so the teeth settle in to the new positions, then the 2nd visit OFF they come. She's.....a little jealous, but happy that the end is in sight for her. Me? I'll be glad to be done with the nagging over rubber bands!
Other than that, it's been quiet. I've been going thru some papers from Dad's....I found a LOT of stuff from his first marriage, including a bunch of photos. It's surreal.......but I need to get them to my half-brother. They're his, not mine.
Oh, and my knitting mojo isn't really back, but I'm halfway down the foot of the ugly hospital socks. I am so over them it's not funny, but I can't start another pair until they're done. And...I *want* to start a new pair. :ugh: Ah, well - I had to throw another old pair away yesterday, so I *need* these socks. And I'm already 1 pair behind on this year's knitting, so I need to get cracking.
