So this is how it all went. What is a Pro-time clinic?
Monday, September 30, 2013
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.
