#13 Health Concerns

Update: The doctor’s visit was excellent. I will need an MRI and more blood tests to narrow the diagnosis options. In two weeks, I should have some answers! We had a great lunch, then visited a bookstore and found this amazing Indian grocery and clothing store. The family who runs the shops are Christians. They were such a treat! The next time we visit the city, I will be sure to purchase a skirt from them. We will settle in with a light dinner and finish watching Pride & Prejudice tonight. đŸ™‚

I’m so excited to have new readers here at Veiled Glory! Thank you for visiting and reading my simple bits of life.

Number 13 on my list of 101 things has to do with a doctor’s appointment I have set for early tomorrow morning in Oklahoma City. For many years, I’ve been having a string of odd symptoms, nothing really severe or life-limiting but nagging: acne, hormonal “issues”, etc. 18 months ago, I had treatment for a hyperthyroid condition, only PTU pills for a few months. This past three months, however, I’ve gained over 15 pound rapidly, despite diet changes and exercise. So I went to an excellent GP Dr. who ran some blood tests. The results were “confusing”; the next step is to see an endocrinologist.

The most probable condition I have is a pituitary tumor. These little dudes are benign 90% of the time and can be removed surgically. I’m not worried at all. The fact is that 1 out of 5 people have some sort of pituitary tumor. I encourage everyone to take a look at this site to learn more. If I do not have a pituitary tumor, the next runner up might be Celiac disease, or allergies to wheat gluten. I’m actually more afraid of this diagnosis because I really really love baking!

So, if you think of it tomorrow morning, please pray for me and my husband as we are running the doctor gamut.

Quotes

"I can't say I don't believe in your God, but I don't believe He meant the world to be as it is." ~Nicholas Higgins. North and South.

"I wanted you to see what real courage is, instead of getting the idea that courage is a man with a gun in his hand. It's when you know you are licked before you begin but you begin anyway and you see it through no matter what." No idea where that last quote came from, but I like it!
