No News is Not Necessarily Good News (It’s Not Bad Either)

It’s been a while, huh?

It’s been nine months since David had his last check up at the Shiley Eye Center, and one year since he had his last blood work done.

So, no news is not necessarily good news, but it’s not bad either.  It’s just not what we wanted to hear.

David’s May blood test returned high T4 (Hypothyroidism), and slightly high A1C (Diabetes) numbers. I am not really surprised though. I’ve been telling him for weeks that his medication is off, but he kept telling me he felt fine.

It’s the little things that I noticed though.   Tiny, minute things that most people wouldn’t make note of…. The break outs on his back, the forgetting from day to day that he told me this story already, the adamant denial that he put something in a particular place, the slight annoyance at completing daily chores.  These things are not a pert of his normal (whatever that word means) existence when he is healthy.

So, we get to experiment with dosages again.  I don’t recall this process being pleasant for him, so I am working on building up some additional armor that I can lend to him when he needs it.

This too shall pass, and we will carry it along together as it does.
