And then it starts all over again...
It's all good, we're happy & that's the main thing.


We are getting into our work rhythm, we're organised & achieving lots. We have energy & strength. We're eating well - sometimes late, but we feel good. We've spent quality time with Hugo, which has been nice & we are reminded of how lucky we are... We have such lovely buddies.


Though the highlight of my week...
For the first time in 26 years, I have been able to hold off Sime beating me in an arm wrestling match...Yes!!!
I think it's all the spinach...Hahaha! My upper arm muscles have become rather large & it makes us laugh... But really it's great & just another sign that my body is working properly. It's been just over 3 weeks since I stopped taking the anti thyroid drug & the under active symptoms are wearing off slowly. The medication takes 8 weeks to kick in, so it probably will take about the same to be completely out of my system or even longer. 


Night, night
Special hugs & kisses to Nana-Stip-Pep - hope you're feeling better soon!


Popeye

That sounds a lot like our day!

I'm glad that you're feeling better. I had thyroid problems for quite a few years before they finally figured things out and I've felt so much better since they did. It makes a huge difference to feel like yourself!

Hi Kay,

You certainly sound in a really good place! I love your list for the day, very similar to ours with the laughing, chatting and snuggling parts :)

I agree with Kath, you look amazing!

Happy weekend Kay!

Great news about the meds Kay, you're looking fantastic, and it sounds like you're getting back to feeling fantastic too x
Thanks Molly - I've suffered for years with Graves Disease, but think I've finally got my immune system sorted.

Kay :)
Thanks Kath - you always say such lovely things!

Thanks Sft - Those are always the nicest parts of any day!

Thanks Catherine - Arm wrestling's great! We've spent many hours over the years... The kids used to love it, especially when we'd all join in against Sime!

Thanks Freerangegirl - I've not only battled with my thyroid, but with the medical profession too... I'm so glad I stuck to my guns!
