Three Things Thursday: 15 March 2018

aka: The Hand, Foot, and Mouth Disease edition

  1. Ugh. HFMD is the worst. Baby girl had a mild go of it, but the kid has one of the more severe cases his pediatrician has seen this spring. I won’t even begin to tell you how miserable both of them have been this week.
  2. That said, because baby girl’s case was mild, she was in fairly good spirits and I got to spend two days with her solo while the kid was at school earlier in the week. She’s a funny, independent little girl and I laughed a lot.
  3. The kid will be staying home from nursery next week (boo! Mainly because he likes going to so much.) and thank goodness I have lots of report writing to do. He can watch movies and I can type. A win for both of us.

Three Things Thursday: 22 February 2018

aka: The I’m Tired of This Edition

  1. Since the previous Three Things post, I was diagnosed and treated for bronchitis. While at the ENT for said bronchitis last month, the doctor noticed I had nodules on the left side of my thyroid. Bloods came back “normal,” and an ultrasound showed the largest of the nodules was 4.5 cm. The protocol is to do a biopsy/fine need aspiration for anything over 1cm. I had that done yesterday.
  2. Now I’m just waiting for the results to be given to my endocrinologist and figure out next steps. I don’t have all the symptoms of hypothyroidism, but might be in early stages or there may be something else going on. Just have to wait and see.
  3. In the interim, I’m trying to stay off Doctor Google and be positive.
