I finally went to an appointment and left with good news. I'm over the moon with happiness. I could have got up out of my chair to hug the lady when she told me ALL my blood work came back normal. The only thing that came back abnormal was my neutrophils and my lymphs, which was the reason why I was there to see her in the first place. The doctor seems to think that the results I have are probably my "normal". Normal is so subjective anyway, so I'll take this bit of good news and run with it. I still get to see her every 6 months and I have to get my blood drawn every 3 months, but I don't have to get a bone marrow biopsy and I can stop worrying about something horrible happening with my blood.
This is going to be a very short post, but I must write that the best thing about today's appointment was my son. After the doctor went over my labs and basically told me I was free to go, she walked over to my son and asked for a high five. My son looked up from his iPad and looked at me and said, "mommy, are you all better now?". I could have melted right there on the floor because he seemed genuinely concerned. When I told him that I was okay, then he gave the doctor a high five. Isn't that the cutest thing ever?
That's it! I'm out of the woods and now I just have to see what is going on with my legs. I'm contemplating shutting down this blog. I mean, I technically don't have Hashimotos anymore. I'm no longer fighting with Endocrinologist and currently my goal is less about health in the medical sense and more about healing my spirit and finding real peace. I'm also on this journey to be more conscious and live in the moment.
Anywho, maybe I'll write about that journey because it does involve getting to a better me. I'll see...
