Thank you for your Prayers~Update ~Sneak peek~
Good Morning to all of my wonderful Prim Blog Friends...As Promised a sneak peek at my latest Creaion..."The Old Crow Gathering" the Cranky Crow is gona love this one for sure!!
God Bless you all for your encouraging words, thoughts and prayers.. You have no idea how much they mean to me and how much they help life me up. I'm usually pretty positive and can handle just about anything even the worst with a sense of humor. But this time I have to admit I'm scared to death...It seems taht my Thyroid is undecided & all mixed up as to how it wishes to preform. Flipping back and forth from Hyper to much hormone to Hypo not enough hormone which threw my body into sort of a fight with itself. Its my understadning that the Tyroid and Pituitary Gland work together to make all our parts work sending out all the right signals and hormones the make things run smoothly..so when the Tyroid is messed up and undecided the wrong signals are sent to the Pituitary Gland which then starts making the Pituitary Gland send the wrong signals. About that time things start going haywire shutting important body functions into a tail spin sometimes shutting down, basically making ones body do all kinds of strange things... Now if there were any humor in my situation it would be what happened with me Every muscle from hed to toe started to burn and then there was nothing but severe pain in all those muscles...What happened next was funny in a sense ..I love to dance but my body decided to do its own dance!
It started jerking out or control..funny as it looked I'm sure to those who stared at me ..it scared me out of my wits. My arms are jumping/jerking out of control as are my legs and my back making me look like I'm doing some sort of dance.. Every time one limb/muscle jerks another muscle someplace else gets a horribly painful cramp/spasm in it so I'm trying to work out the cramp while another body part is jerking and jumping about making another painful muscle cramp spasm come on. On top of all that my neck, face, hands and arms are numb and tingling..its very painful. Its also happening to my chest & heart muscles as well.
If I said I wasn't scared to death It would be a total lie because I am... I have no insurance so very limited medical help is available without finanical help.
The hospital has taken me off the Tyroid meds for now. They did give me a pill to help with the jerks & tremers but unable to stableize me because they do not have an Endocrinologist on board. They have recomended that I go to Ohio State university Hospital.
The findings of the Ultra sound
Tyroid enlarged, with increased color flow, suggesting a non-specific tyroiditis.
Three small nodules are identified within the gland, One of these in the superior left lobe measures greater then 1 cm.
Reccomended ultrasound guided fine needle aspiration of this larger indeterminate nodule is reccomended immediately.
I watched the ultra sound and I was able to see the Nodules...scary they look huge in an ultra sound.
Anyway I'm really scared and pretty much clueless how I'm going to handle all of this..Other then to hand it over to the Lord because this one is out of my hands...and ask for your prayers.
Thank you for being my good Friends and great support system especially right now when I feel so very alone..God Bless you all!!
