From my leg to my neck in 3.3 seconds... A tale of medical woe...

So I went back to the real world and eneded up staying longer than expected!

The whole clot business turned out to be a non-event (after scans and specialist visits), but then, mid conversation, the specialist noticed what is apparently a goiter in my neck (RANDOM!).

I had no idea it was there.

One thing led to another and I ended up being injected with radioactive stuff (bring on the superpowers!) to check for abnormal function in a nodule that was found on my thyroid!!

Most convoluted non-illness ever!

Anywho, everything is all good and we even managed to squeeze in a few cool things like a trip to the zoo, and on the ferry, and into the city, and the museum, and shopping...

Boy, can my man SHOP! It puts me to shame!!

Now I've gotta go earn some $$ to pay off that credit card!!!

Back to see you again my friend. Odd thing about non-illnesses, eh?

AND... (drum roll please),

NetChick sent me.

One advantage of living way off the beaten path, and on an island, no less, is that creditors have a hard time finding you. Just something to think about...

I hope that your neck in general and thyroid in particular are fine, Olyal. Happy shopping!

A goiter? I hope they zapped it!

I resemble that convoluted health trip experience and I agree... focusing on keeping the credit card open is more entertaining... Tanya sent me

Glad you are okay!! :) And, I've found (in the past when I actually had a boyfriend) that men CAN actually shop. And shop alot :)
