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!!

I love this gathering..its so Prim Perfect... I will be lisiting it on ebay as soon as I can ..

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 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 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!!



  1. Tonya, sending many prayers your way! I hope they can help you to get this stabilized, I know it must be scary but as you said, give it to God, he is in charge. (((BIG HUGS))) to you!

  2. Oh gosh Tonya, I can't even imagine how scared you are! Bless you! My thoughts and prayers are with you girl!!


  3. Oh sweetie, bless your heart I wish I could come see you and give you a great big hug. I sure hope someone is with you. Will be praying for you.


  4. Is there a different Thyroid med they can try Tonya? Pls get the tests if you are able! Praying praying you get through this without too many more scary episodes and that they can get you on the right meds!! ~*~Lisa

  5. Oh Tonya - you know my thoughts and prayers are with ya. Must be horrendously scary...and painful. Hope you get some answers and resolution soon. (And, yup - that crow gathering is all kinds of it!!) Take good care.....Hugs ~ Robin

  6. Oh how scary that is, to be out of control of your body. But maybe a specialist can get you all fixed up and going in no time. It goes back to the dreaded little four letter word
    TEST! I hate when the doctor says that word, it always makes me nervous. But sometimes in life we have to do things we really would rather not do just to get better.
    My prayers are with you that the doctors can get you going again. I love the crow gathering, how prim.
    Prayers for a speedy recovery.
    Country at heart

  7. Best wishes and lots of prayers coming your way. I hope they find a med that will work, hope everything works out soon for you. God bless.

  8. Tonya, that does sound scary. Still praying for you!

  9. OMGoodness Tonya, I know you must be scared. I am praying that you will be able to get the help you need. I hope you are feeling better real soon.

  10. Tonya,
    You are in my thoughts and prayers!

  11. Keeping you in my thoughts and prayers.

  12. Catching up on reading your blog today & suprised to hear of your health problems. I would be very scared to. Lifting you up in prayer. Asking for complete healing & comfort for you. The crow gathering is wonderful. It should sell quickly. I have made the crow stitchery design in the past. It was a fast seller. In my thoughts. Blessings!

  13. Oh for heavens sake. If it isn't one thing it's another. Poor darlin'. I've got hypo since I was in my 30's and my daughter has it too. I'm praying for you and hope the doctors get you straightened out quick. Hang in there sweetie :-)

  14. Praying for you. NO insurance in this country should have nothing to do with the quality of your care. You need an advocate. Hang in there, prayers are being said for you.

  15. Tonya, I pray that the Lord will heal you, and he can, I do not have answers, but I have faith, and I know that he is real and able to do anything!
    I am sorry you are going through so much, and yet have the most amazing disposition, that is truly grace! I have been a little behind, like usual for me.
    I think it's great that you donated things to the Mission, I feel like anything is better than doing nothing, and I may not be wealthy, but I can contribute something.
    God always meets my needs, so I have to give,because it's a drive in me. I hope that makes sense.
    Your gatherings are beautiful!
    God bless,


I'm so Blessed that you stopped by & shared your thoughts with me today! Reading your comments always makes me Smile!
