Back from the hospital

Just dropping by to let everyone know that everything went well. I am back home and the worst of this whole experience was being away from my baby.  She told me the most incredibly moving things.  She is so wise! As for me, I am almost pain free, though bloated as a balloon from all the medications. In about 10 days we will have the results of the biopsy back, so fingers crossed and spells chanted.  Until then I am taking levothyroxine against doctor's orders because I won't go completely hypothyroid for no reason. You have to become completely hypothyroid before receiving radioactive iodine,  but that is something you do if the biopsy showed cancer, so my self medication in the worst case scenario would only set me back 10 days. It is too painful to go through it just in case. I have to wait a few weeks to see if my parathyroids are intact and able to work. And as for my talking voice is fine, but I have to wait a month before I try singing because it would be too strenuous for my vocal cords. This experience taught me a lot about myself and our most human version.  I have so much respect for nurses after watching them taking care of everyone tirelessly and lovingly. And I realized of course that it is important to chase after little happy moments with all our might.
I love you all. Take care of yourselves and loved ones.

Fingers crossed, spells are being chanted and candles are lit. I do hope everything will be alright sis. I was thinking of you for some reason yesterday and now I just remembered why. I came in to check on you to see if you were alright and I saw this. We really must be "soul sisters" because it seems I know when something is amiss.
