Recent health update

I am feeling pretty good and am well over the laryngitis and "flu or near walking pneumonia."

I'm so glad! Last week was my 4th Ct/Pet Scan and next week is the trip to Houston, Texas to

see Dr. Burzynski. I'm really looking forward to finding out how my gene marker test was as

well as the Ct/Pet Scan. Just wondering if the medicine will change or what he will say. I'm so

glad that my daughter, Maria is going to go with me as well as her son Tate. He was been

saving money for me all along and it will be a blessing to have him with us. For some reason,

he makes me feel better just to be around him. Maria is wonderful and will be a great help as

usual. Today, I saw my endocrinologist who recently ran some more thyroid tests. I was

officially diagnosed with hypothyroidism (Low thyroid) and will be starting on the medicine in

the morning. So, I should be feeling better in many ways. Hypothyroidism runs in the family,

as I have 2 sisters with it and many other family members as well. I have had many of the

symptoms for some time now but have put it on the back burner since cancer took preference.

I will write more next week and give a thorough update.

  1. Thyroid problems seem to run in our family. I think everyone of us except Tim have had thyroid problems (hyperthyroid, hypothyroid and thyroid cancer). What gives???
