Diagnosis

Well the bloodwork came back and my doctor informed me that I have severe hyperthyroidism. Everything else looked relatively ok compared to that. This isn't good news, but it's news at least, and I'm happy to know it so I can start having it treated. They're going to try getting me into a doctor ASAP, so maybe I can start getting well. Thank you for your well wishes and positive energy. :) I'll keep you updated.

Ann,
Thanks for the update on your health. I'm sure that to finally have a diagnosis is somewhat of a relief eventhough the condition is not. We'll be praying for you. Thanks for your upbeat comments on our blog. --Charity

Ann, I'm so glad to hear you finally have a diagnosis. I pray treatment can happen soon and painlessly, and I pray you will get back to good very, very soon. It's been long enough! Keep fighting! Gambatte!

Yay! I'm really excited that they've tracked down the source of your problems. If you weren't sure you were making progress before, you surely will be now. God bless.

Hey Ann,
I am also so glad that you have a diagnosis. Are they going to zap your thyroid and put you on thyroid medicine?

Ann:

Add our own "Praise God" to the rest written here. I hope the doctors will be able to help you get better. My mom suffered from hyperthyroidism too, and they did to her exactly what Dan is describing in the previous post. It seems like a big deal, but it's really not. You'll have to take a pill that will essentially do what your thyroid gland was over-doing. Daily pills are part of my life now, too. I'm on cholesterol medicine at age 32! (I've got a family history).

Anyway, we miss you and hope to see you again soon. -- Erik
