Health Update

Things were going pretty well. Most of my symptoms were disappearing with the medicine I was taking.

Then, my doctor called my cell phone and asked if I had started "binge drinking." Well, the holidays had been stressful, but not *that* stressful. He took me off of the medicine, and all my symptoms have returned.

I'm going in for treatment next week. They are going to treat me with radioactive iodine. That will kill of part of my thyroid and give me the best chance of staying off medicine.

The bad news is, however, that I'll be in a sort of isolation for five days until I'm no longer radioactive. :-)
