Stupid neck

I think necks are worthless. Mine only has problems. And its not very pretty.
Saw the Endo man on Tuesday and he found an enlarged lymph node. Since I haven't had a cold, this is very unsettling. Endo man thinks thyroid c-bomb may have spread to lymphs. Before he found the lump he said I could have my next scan in November, but then changed his mind so I have to get it ASAP. So its scheduled for me to get thyrogen injections and scan the 5th thru 9th. The 9th just happens to be my birthday. Not only do I get to lay on a cold table, ever so early in the morning that day, but I also get to go see Endo man again and get poked in the arm by bloodninja-nurse!! WOO! (Insert sarcasm) Pending the results of the scan I may have RAI again or get my lymph node popped out. My sonographer says there is only one node thats big which is good because its isolated I guess, but she thinks I should have it removed even if the scan is good or bad.

There are a bajillion other things I would like to do for my birthday. I wish they were having a midnight showing of Rocky Horror Picture Show. That's where I would be.

Last weekend I helped my little sisters get ready for their prom. Ahhh memories. Batman and I went to 3 proms together.

Ten years ago, Batman and I went to our first prom together. We had tons of fun. I can't imagine how much all that cost us back then. I know my sisters had to spend a ton more than we did though.

Last weekend we also went to a benefit dance for Batman's grandma who is living in an RV outside a hospital waiting for a lung transplant. The silent auction went well.
Then we let Spiderman go camping with his aunt. We joined them for smores but not for the sleeping in tents. Spiderman loved the night in the tent though. Then he went fishing with his grandpa. He also went bowling with his grandma. Busy weekend for a 5 year old.

I'm sorry you have to go through all that testing and everything. I will be thinking good thoughts for you!

Well... keep us updated with all the scan stuff. My next set of scans is at the end of May. Hopefully they'll find both of us free and clear!

Keep me in the loop.
