The Results Are In

First of all, I want to thank you so much for your comments, prayers, good thoughts and wishes.  I am very happy to report that the results of my very painful biopsy were CANCER FREE!  The nodules are follicular and are very common.

To say I am relieved is an understatement.

Right now, I am on a very low dose of methimazole and I can feel the positive effects of the drug already.  The bone numbing fatigue has lessened, I wake up fairly refreshed and the fog clouded mind is clearing.  Today was the first day that I didn't fade by 1 PM. I'm hoping things continue to get better as the days go on and not swing too far the other direction.

I have a number of pieces that I am almost done stitching.  I am within an hour of finishing the little LHN snowman ornament and the pumpkin pinkeep from With thy Needle and Thread.  I've finished Prim Sister's School of Needlework (thanks, Laura!) and almost, almost finished with Blue and Brown pillow (watch out Faye, it's coming your way soon!).  And of course, Done My Me is framed.  And I've started filling in the bottom of Prairie Schooler's, Merry Christmas.  I'm a happy stitcher.

Now, to take some pictures...where's that silly little pocket camera....
On a side note, I'm looking for Missy Raven...Missy, if you are reading this, please email me or leave a comment here. I have this box o' goodies for you and I need your address so I can saddle up the pony and get it to you.  And to the lovely lady who wanted to know if Done By Me was a kit, please email me too. I am willing to pass the  pattern on to you. Just need your address.

Anyway, I am so blessed by all of you, thank you again and again for all your support.  You guys are terrific.  There's nothing like stitchers to lift someone higher than I ever thought possible.

I am so glad to hear your news!!! Yay! Glad the medicine is helping too. It's really hard to get one's thyroid levels adjusted. I went through that as well. I hope yours gets adjusted quickly!
