monday? really? bummer. i would like more weekend please. pretty please. with sugar on top.
the party for my grandma was really nice - she was surrounded by family and friends, a great way to celebrate the milestone of being 90. at one point, i saw her drinking some beer out of a keg cup and laughing it up with the guys in the family. loved that moment.
there were a lot of people there that i haven't seen for a while, and some that i have only met once before. many of them asked how i was feeling, told me that they were praying for me, that i was looking better. it has always been very comforting to know that i have so many people rooting for me from near and far, those that know me well and those that cheer me on simply because they know someone who loves me. i like having a lot of peeps in my corner.
on friday i went to the doctor and she said my varied symptons do sound like thryoid disease but she is running a large spectrum of blood tests. i should hear back tomorrow or tuesday on what the results show. we did talk about the fact that i already have one autoimmune disease (celiac) and all of my ct scans and whether or not those factors put me at higher risk of thyroid problems. we will wait and see and go from there. wait and see. three of my least favorite words these days.
happy (or atleast bearable) monday to you. i know we can do this. it might hurt a tiny bit and might be a little rough, but i know we can stick it out. when we do, we will be one day closer to friday...the big payoff.
