I realized I never updated after my ENT doctor visit. It went fine and I know nothing more than I did before. He was very reassuring, saying that many people have nodules and most are benign. Even should the worst happen, cancer of the thyroid is slow-growing and typically can be handled by removing the thyroid. He said thyroid cancer is not like what you think of when you think of the big C word. So, I’m feeling okay about it. I go in on 3/15 for a biopsy just to make sure. Hoping it’s nothing, but feeling optimistic that even if it isn’t nothing, it’s not going to do me in. Eek!
I also have high cholesterol and need to get started on medication for that once I’ve finished weaning Monkey. You can’t be on the meds if you are bfing or PG, which has led to interesting conversations with DW. Along the lines of, “It’s looking like we won’t be having another baby, since you need to be on this medication and all. I’m not sure how I feel about that.” I don’t look at it that way. I will have a conversation with my doctor to see what would happen should we decide to move forward with TTC #2. I’m thinking I could see a nutritionist, get serious about excercising, and find natural ways to try to keep my cholesterol in check. And once I’m done with PG and nursing, I can always go back on the meds. Who knows. I can’t tell you how sick I am of thinking/stressing/wondering about the possibility of TTC #2. I’ll be so glad when the decision is made, one way or the other.
