I'm talkin' about getting my RAI (radioactive iodine) scan dose today. This afternoon to be precise. My TSH is 30, so I will head down to the lab and swallow me a mini dose of the radioactive stuff, then wait 3 days and get my actual scan on late Friday afternoon.
I will know the results on Monday. That is also the day I get my final labs back to know if there are still cancer cells swimming around in my neck. Wish me some luck and say some extra prayers, because I really don't want to take the big nuke dose and be away from my family for a week or so.
I'm feeling pretty optimistic because I'm not experiencing any difficulty swallowing like I did last year. In fact, I couldn't turn my head to look over my right shoulder and still be able to speak. This year, I'm glad to say I can still referee the kids sitting in the back seat of the van. (if only my arms were a little longer).
I'm all set to party next Monday, (or possibly Tuesday) after I get the good news and can get off this low-iodine diet. Anyone want to join me in eating a celebratory Shrimp Salad from Bajio's?
To see what others are Talkin about this Tuesday check out the Lazy Organizer and did you know she is organizing something everyday and snapping a photo of it? Very inspirational. I even organized my yogurt to support her.
