Trying to take care of sisters today. Charlie was puking and moaning much of the night, so I just read to her out of one of my research books (about the life of a Revolutionary soldier) until I started getting hoarse. Then after she went to sleep (around 5:00am), I rested until it was time to get up and take poor Sue into the dentist to have her teeth pulled for her upper denture. (Ouch.) I felt terrible for her, because I know all she'll be able to do for a couple days is just suffer.

It was hard to believe that just 12 hours earlier we had been at the beautiful Oregon Coast sitting at one of our favorite restaurants enjoying a lovely dinner against the backdrop of a glorious sunset.

Anyway, we cancelled our writing group meeting which was originally scheduled for tonight . . . actually we re-scheduled for next week.

Tomorrow night is my massage (again)! Considering how much it hurt and how sore I was, I can't believe how much I'm looking forward to it.

Today I was a teaching tool for a young medical student who was shadowing my doc. He got to do a breast exam and spend about 15 minutes listening to my 'complaints.' I got a kick out of him. (He agreed using leeches on my shoulder would make a cool blog entry, especially the photos.) Good news: After reviewing my lab results, we all agreed it was time to start taking Synthroid and see if it would help with my thyroid levels. I'm excited to see if this alleviates my low energy, I-don't-give-a-shit attitude (not to mention the stubborn weight thing).

Well, as Sue says, that's why they call is 'medical practice'! I hope when the soon-to-be-doc sees me on the news, he feels some pride at having listened to my breathing and massaging my boobs, hehe.

Thanks for being soooooo very GOOD to me -- both last night and today. I hate being sick, but you're the BEST. You really are!

Both Sue and I are lucky to have you, that's for sure!

And it doesn't spoil the beach trip one bit that I got sick. It was lovely and fun.

I get a kick out of the medical student thing. Cute!

And I'm sure glad you got the meds for your thyroid! (woo hoo)

(hugs)

Enjoy your massage!

You are the best sister ever, thank you so much for being there for me today, it was a rough day, but much better tonight. Thank goodness that Charlie and I are lucky enough to have you take care of us. I think this whole experience will soon be super for me. There are many things worse than what I went through today, but I don't want to experience them for a week or two.HeHe

I am glad that your doctor appointment went well, and the young doctor was lucky to have you to practice on. The thyroid issue may make a big difference for you, lets hope it will. You must be patient as it takes a while for the medicine to kick in, now I am speaking from my own use of the drugs, and three times of upping the doses before I felt quite a bit better.

You haven't had any issues with your hair, have you? That was a big one for me with the thinning of mine and then coming back when the dose was higher. Of course with me, it could have been other issues also since my balance of vitamins and everything are so difficult.

The beach trip was so great, what a beautiful day to experience together. Thank you for the lovely dinner, driving, and being the generous sister that you are. I hope Charlie feels better real soon and I am glad that tomorrow night you will get your much needed massage. Love you lots, Sue

They are lucky to have you, and while I feel for Charlie -- Sue was the one in my heart all day yesterday with what she is going through - and a full knowing of my own stuff.

Sounds like you have a pretty cool doc, and that is a great thing!

Lots of luck with the new plan :)

love

Extremely sweet of you to read to charlie that way. At least your thyroid is low and not going crazy like Debbie's did. She had to have hers burnt out with radiation and then it took for ever to get her balanced with thyroid medicine.

I would think that you'll feel like a new person when everything gets balanced for you. I just think it's amazing that you've been able to do so much while having a low thyroid level.
