My last blog was about all 4 appointments I had on one morning. I ended up having to go to the lab for a bunch of test that my Rhumy wanted. I asked the lab to notified the Pro-Time clinic that I would have a pro-time done with my blood draws.
For those who want to know (Jaxmommy) what a pro-time clinic is. Pro-times are done on those of us lucky enough (sarcasm here) to be on blood thinners like Warfarin/Coumadine to adjust ones medication. If you are too thin, you could bleed out and if you are too thick, you could have a blood clot. Is life just ducky! They have been trying to get my dosages correct for the last couple of months. Once they get them correct, I hope to only have to go once a month. It has been more like every 10 days.
So I was sure that all was well with the ultrasound on my thyroid because I didn't hear from the doctor until the next week on Wed. I was hoping for a letter in the mail, all is well, a short call from one of the nurses, all is well. Nope I hear the doctors voice, all is not so well. My DH Jeff didn't get that for many years. Mail or Nurse notification things are good. Doctor call not so great. lol Really everything is gonna be OK. I do have 2 small somethings about 7 mm each. She referred me to a specialist Endocrinologist. I figured I would hear from them in a few days, nope the next day. I guessed they wouldn't be able to see me for a couple of months, nope. Endo originally wanted the 11th of Oct. but I had another doctors appointment and didn't want to wait around for 3 hours. So I see the Endo on the 15th of Oct. I am pretty sure all will be find. Even if it is something, this is a pretty easy problem to take care of.
So this may or may not explain my lack of energy and motivation. This may or may not be anything to worry about and could be normal for a woman my age. That is what my new family practice doctor said anyway. I do really like her and hope to be a patient of hers for many years to come.
Ok that is all for now. Will make another blog possibly tomorrow to tell you all about free museum day at the Gene Autry museum up in LA. that I attended on the 28th. Keep your eyes peeled for that one.

Well I got this notice tonight about the new SAT. It said in the FAQ that you would get 500 Sparks points for ordering this item. Wonder when the points will show up. They took my credit card information, so I think the points should show up ASAP. Will let you all know. It took a few days years ago after ordering the first Sparks books for the points to show up. We will see. I am really hoping by using the SAT, it will get my motivation back up to wanting to be more active again. I got weighed at the doctors last week and I am back up to 208.5#. I wasn't that heavy when I originally started with Sparks in 2009 @204#.
So I am getting a bit depressed but hopefully the doctors will get this thyroid thing under control. They have schedule a ultrasound for Thursday morning to check to see if anything is abnormal. One of my sister had thyroid cancer but I am hopeful it is nothing like that. I also see my Rhumatologist , pro-time clinic and dermatologist, all the same day. It will be an early morning since I have to be at x-ray @7:30am,, Rhumy @ 8:45am in same building, pro-time clinic is at 9:30am across the street, then Derma @ 10am but I have to drive up the street about 1/2 mile or so. Think I will come home and take a nap after all that. lol
Today was my oldest sister's birthday, she is on here but not every often. Firery1 is her name, and I think it would be swell if some of us would send her b-day wishes. I hope this will motivate her to get on board here at Sparks. xo to all.

So a week ago yesterday I got another migraine. Laid me up good for 2 days. I had to go get another pro-time on Monday @ 11:45am. Too darn hot here this whole week. Having to use Franks car with no AC is killing me. lol People with Lupus will understand that extremes of weather does a number on us. It's 3:30pm here and just under 100 degrees. Most of last week was over 100. Wouldn't have been so bad but S.CA decided we needed a bunch of humidity. Very rare for this area but it is what it is.
So it's 104, no AC in the car and I had to drive to that darn pro-time appointment having just got over another migraine. It is a little over 10 miles round trip but in traffic it takes about 20 mins or so, one way. Then on Wednesday, I had to go to the ATM and I get there and lo I do not have the ATM card. It is still sitting at home. Back to home, back to ATM, then get some gas in Franks car ( he has gone out job hunting most everyday and still no luck). I go to CVS where my script for a refill for Maxall Melt (generic version) is waiting. I grab the bag go home and it is not the melts but pills. I don't even know the name of the doctor that is on the paperwork? So I call CVS, head back to CVS and my head is pounding again, from the heat, pouring sweat. I finally get the correct melting pills. I find that using the melts works best and faster for me then the pills which take longer to kick in. When one gets aura's with flashing lights, you want that medication to work now, not in 30 mins.
So that's my story and I am sticking to it.
For those that commented on my last blog regarding the Lazy Boy furniture. If LB has the furniture you want at the S.CA warehouse located I believe over in Riverside County, we live in Orange County, in color, style, fabric. You can get it delivered to your home in under a week, unless you want to drive to the warehouse & pickup yourself. This is why it is taking so long to get our new living room furniture.
