Almost to the end of the week. I have been bad this week. Hubby and I had lunch out on Sunday because we got to the theater late for our movie and there was not a place to park at first. So we decided to go to lunch instead since we were both hungry. After getting home, we both laid down and took a nap; I guess the lack of sleep and stress is catching up to me.

Monday night I got together with a friend that I have not seen since my wedding reception 5 years ago. He was on his way home from seeing his daughter. I was good, just had a salad since it was 8pm.

Yesterday I had an appointment to go to before work, so I was not going to bring food along and then have it sit in the hot car while I was at the appointment, so I ate out with fast food. But today I do not have any stops, so I will again take some food along to put in the fridge at work for the next couple of days that I am there.

Tried to get a thyroid recheck since my number had more than doubled over a 6 month time frame, but the insurance does not allow again yet since I am still within range, but not by much. So I guess I will keep taking the kelp tablets to get the iodine to help the thyroid.

My dad has a doctor appt this morning, and mom is going to push to get the approval sent to the surgeon. Dad's pain level has gone from a 6 to an 8 all the time, with pain medication. His oxygen level has dropped because he cannot sit up straight because of the pain, to be able to breathe deep to get enough oxygen. He does one word answers if he answers at all, because the brain cannot work on anything else with the pain so high. Nobody seems to want to acknowledge that the increased pain causes his blood pressure to rise, they all want to say the heart is the issue when it is not. He passes the heart exams with flying colors. So I am anxious and nervous because here we are again at the doctors' mercy instead of them dealing with the real issue. I told mom I will have my cell phone on me at work, so she can text me once they are done with the doctor. I am so afraid that they are going to have to do an emergency surgery because the doctor won't take care of it now, as soon as possible.

I am off to work again, only 2 more work days left to the week. Hope all have a good one.

    Have you looked into selenium for your thyroid?

    I'm so sorry for what your dad is going through.
