Are you Pinning??

Let's discuss Pinterest. I'm in love. I feel like I'm starting to think about what my "style" is. I'm decorating my house with it. It's inspired me to be crafty. I'm making coasters this weekend. I'm the owner of modge podge. Me- crafty? Who knew?? See that new quote in that blue box up there? It's a repin and a new fave of mine.

I'm loving trying new things. All the crafting and the knitting (ok- just casting on still, but it's a start!) is making me feel like there is more to life than trying to get pregnant. And I think along the way I forgot about that. I'm determined to be happy this year. Relentless Optimism strikes again.

And since I'm a whore...

Best.News.Ever.

I AM CANCER FREE!!!

I went to the Endo today and he doth proclaim it that I am CANCER FREE!! I have a 99.6% chance that the cancer will never come back. Thems pretty good odds. YAHOO!! It's really the best news I've had in a long, long while. And any good news is welcome in this camp.

So here's the plan- I go back in 6 months for a follow up with blood work and a physical exam of my neck- just to make sure there are no lumps or bumps. 6 months after that, I'll have a specific set of blood work done- thyrogen induced thyroglobulin blood test done. Thyroglobulin is the "cancer marker" in the thyroid bloodwork. It should be very, very, very low. And right now- it is. So in a year- they will give me thyrogen to try to spike it. If it stays like it is now- we're in the clear! I expect no surprises.

And now I can return to my non-cancer having life. I'll take my synthroid and forget that the last three months ever happened.

No News

Is good news, right? In this camp- that is for sure.

No new blog entries lately- I guess I was on blogging hiatus. And really- there was nothing going on. Ok, this may be a lie, but nothing huge. I have lots to blog about. I'm working on my To Do List and learning to enjoy my time off the baby making trail. So I'll be back to blogging soon!
