Hello all my Prim Friends.. I hope you all had a Happy Thanksgiving weekend!
Peg & I created this beautiful Skates & Old Sled gathering for Peg's wall...next to the fireplace..It turned out so cute.. We started decorating the rest of the Family room...

Sadly my weekend didn't end the way I'd like no matter how much fun we had decorating the porch, and the house No matter how good all the food was...for some reason Seems My Thyroid problems aren't going to be resolved simply by taking medication.
For those of you who follow my blog you know they diagnosed me with Hyperthyroid disease as well as graves disease about 3 months ago and things were going pretty good on the medication the doctor put me on. About two weeks ago I noticed that I was feeling like I did before medication...getting worse every day.
 Total exhaustion, diarrhea, severe muscle pain, spasms in my muscles...to the point of complete body breakdown Sunday night... And here I am in the hospital waiting to find out exactly what it going on.. and the bigger Question is why... My blood test now show Hypothyroidism not hyperthyroidism..they tell me it isn't uncommon the problem is figuring out exactly how to work the meds to keep me stable.
The serious side to this flipping back and forth is having a heart attack.. and Kidney failure.
Getting a bit more scarey by the day with every new thing the doctors tell me. They did an Ultra Sound of the thyriod this morning witht he hopes of finding some clues to the problem.
I never do things the normal way like others... my illnesses are always complicated by something that test the Doctors. I just want out of here I hate it ..I hate the defeat of illness, I hate the cost of illness I just hate illness..especially illness that messes with my ability to create...You all could find me throwing a verbal tantrum.

The Doc was in earlier and said he hopes to get the Ultra sound read today and find out if he can get me on the right meds and release me if not I will be here another 24 hours.. I sure hope not but i also want to feel good and able to get around in my shop!!

I need your prayers for a resolution to the problem ...

I have a sneak peek but decided to post it separately...since it is so Awesome..

Have a great day.!



  1. I truly hope you feel better and the doctors figure out the right meds for your thyroid Tonya. I know you've been dealing with this for a long while. Stay positive! Sending prayers for you my friend.
    Prim Blessings,

  2. Tonya--I hope you are feeling better soon! I will be praying for you--and for the doctors to have wisdom to know how to treat you properly. Take care!! Karen

  3. Very cute sled you two worked on! I found a small sled at a TS but we haven't figured out where to hang it yet.

    I will be praying for you, Tonya. I pray the doctors will know how to treat you properly and I pray you will get out of there ASAP. I was in the ER for only five hours earlier this month, and I hated every moment of it.

    Hang in there and stay strong, it won't be much longer till you can go home!!

    Prim Blessings from Jessica

  4. Oh dear, Tonya! You take it easy while you are in there, no racing down the halls! I will pray that they find out soon, how to take care of the problem and you will be creating!

    Bear Hugs & Blessings~Karen

  5. My goodness, you do seem to have bad luck. Herew's hoping those docs can figure it out.....
    Love the sled vignette.

  6. Oh please please please Tonya stay encouraged. You've always been here for me, now I want to be here for you. Just take it easy and let the Dr.s figure out what's wrong. Sometimes God has to get us on our backs to tell us something, so listen to what He is saying....rest and maybe prevention from something worse down the road.
    Hang in there, I will be praying for you.

    Many hugs

  7. Sweetie ~ sending you get well wishes ~ you are in my thoughts & prayers~

  8. Sending my prayers for you Tonya! Hope you are feeling better real soon...


  9. Oh dear, I am so sorry to hear that you are having these troubles. Do stay postive ok? It will help you feel better. Advice: try to see the humor it things there. I know that that may sound strange. I know that having an illness is not fun. When I had cancer, it was terrible, but I did have some experiences that were hilarious. I really did.
    Have wheelchair races down the halls :)
    I will be praying for you. And for the doctor to have the wisdom to know what to do to help you.
    I love your sled photo. You always impress me with your creative talents. :)
    Take care my new blogging friend. Janet W

  10. Tonya,
    Sending you my positive thoughts and prayers.

  11. My prayers are with you that the Dr finds out what is going on and that it is nothing really serious. Of course being in the hospital is serious stuff. No fun playing the waiting game is it? Just stay positive that it all works out and you are home soon.
    Take care
    Country at heart

  12. Tonya, I promise I won't stop praying for you til the doctor's have it all figured out and you are feeling better and creating again! Let the prayers from all your blog friends lift your spirits as much as possible. Feel us caring for you long distance!

  13. Awww Sweetie - you're in my prayers and sending good thoughts your way. Hospitals aren't the funnest place to be - especially this time of year. Hoping they get things figured out soon and you're back in your shop doing what you love to do. (Now, don't go trying to clean and organize or decorate the hospital while you're there, ya hear?) ;o) Love the sled and skates...Smiles & Get Well Hugs ~ Robin
