Just posted in other thread that the ultrasound showed two nodules on my thyroid and now I have to meet with a surgeon on Monday to discuss biopsy. My throat is now hurting on the left side. The technician spent a lot more time pressing on that side.

I hope it turns out to be nothing for you to worry about. Please keep us posted........you know how we like to worry!

I hope this doesn't interfere with your Mom's visit.

I think I may wait until Sunday to tell her. She will be annoyed with me. but if I tell her when she gets her, she is just going to be worrying and asking me questions that I do not know the answer to.

Youngest daughter has finally started dating again after her divorce. She accepted on online date, I think they went out twice but this is different. It may cause some drama in the family. My husband, although he won't admit it is a bit of a racist, and a staunch Republican. Note o say, I do not want any debates about all this. Anyway, this guy is African American and a Democrat. The way I feel about it is we have one of two choices, not accept him and risk alienating our daughter or just accept the situation. As long as he treats her fine it is OK with me. They met in high school, were an item then, although that was the time in our lives she didn't communicate with us. Saw each other while out a couple of weeks ago and decided to make a go of it again.She has a rescue dog that doesn't like men at all unless they are a constant in her life and the dog loves him.

MRI on my knee today. Xray showed a little arthritis but not enough to warrant the crackling, clicking, thumping, swelling, heat, and occasion pain. All I know is that it is hyperextended.

Boyfriend started Chantix Monday, for the second time. Fingers are crossed it works this time!

Critters and foliage here in Iowa are confused by the weather. My almost-dead petunia weakly bloomed, as did a wild orchid. My dog's coat doesn't know whether to fill in for the winter of shed, so it's doing both. Has been quite warm; expecting our 2nd overnight freeze warning in the next morning or so. That's 2nd for the season! Unusual.

MRI report already in! And not pretty.

"Unfortunately, there are a lot of abnormalities here including a large amount of fluid, a cyst, and a torn ligament. We will refer to orthopedics as it sounds like these have been a chronic issue"

"This cyst measures at least 2.1 cm AP by 2.1 cm transverse by
5.3 cm craniocaudal". 5.3cm = just over 2"! I can feel the bulge.

"There is a complex tear of the anterior horn of the lateral meniscus and there is a nondisplaced horizontal oblique tear of the posterior horn the meniscus". The PCL (posterior cruciate ligament) "...some signal heterogeneity proximally which may reflect a tiny partial interstitial tear or degenerative signal, chronic".

Guess I wait for my PA to call with a recommendation to an orthopedist.

Sparky you are just having a 'mell of a hess'. Good luck with the treatment.

My daughter was on Chantix for awhile and didn't like the side effects or the cost. She has lousy insurance and would not let us pay for it. It finally took her wanting it for herself. Kind of like me and my diet. It took the E-cig to ehlp her stop and now she is E-cig free for about a month and about 6 months free of the cig itself.Now the smell of cigarette smke nauseates her, can't stand to be around it at all. I was so proud of her on vacation. Alabama was a difficult to drive through, dark, a lor of rural areas with no lights along the highway, and no cell tower for Sprint based phones which is all we have. I can't tell you how many tied we got lost. She wanted a cigarette a couple of times but she didn't do it.

Morning everyone...brrr!! mid-autumn chill has finally arrived...

Aw, Barb timing could have been better with your mom visiting. Too bad you can't put it off until she goes home. Hope that your biopsy will reveal benign results. Keep us up to date...

Doydie, it's difficult when one of us doesn't agree with our children's choices. I hope and pray that your DH can open his heart and welcome your DD's choice if it becomes more serious.

Our DD married a Packer fan, of all things (we are diehard Cubs/Bears fans). Added to that, he is a conservative Christian and we are liberal Catholics. He is a wonderful husband and father to my DD and DGCs and gets along well with all of us (although I get the feeling I rub him the wrong way). We love him and honor his views and way of looking at the world. As long as he is an ethical person and he cherishes our DD we are fine with our differences. That is what is most important to us.

We were up at DD's house for several days to help out after she gave birth to Caydence Noel. DGD Haddie is doing well with the transition...she caught a devil of a cold though so she wasn't herself. She is still a delight no matter. We are going back up next week sometime to help out once SIL goes back to work.

Seems we have pretty much lost the lot we were looking to build a new house on someone has put money down on the lot. It was beautiful. Oh well:roll eyes:

CT scan came back with no tumors. The fat has been further destroyed due to Copaxone. my poor abdomen looks bad from all of the dents and rearranged fat cells as well as surgical scarring. At least it's not serious.

Well, onward and upward...DH and I have to order bathroom shower stalls and a tub today for the reconstruction of the flood zone. One of these days it will begin:roll eyes:

Have a great day!
