Result of Blood Work are In!

I know that many of you have been concerned with my health problems of late and so I thought I should tell you about my doctor visit yesterday and the results of my blood work they just called me with.

My doctor and I talked about this “virus” that I can’t get rid of.  She agreed that it could be something that I have to build up an immunity to but said that it could be a couple of other things too.  So, in addition to all my regular blood work that they do every 3 – 6 months, she add a few more tests in there this time around.  

Her nurse called me this morning with the results:

My thyroid levels are still way off; that in itself could be causing most of my symptoms; so we are increasing my dosage.

Since diabetes runs in my mother’s family, we always check for that; I am now officially pre-diabetic and have to start a diet/nutrition plan and exercise program.  

My cholesterol levels, which are usually excellent, are off; LDL is high; so there is more new meds there to take.

She is putting me back on my acid re-flux med’s.

Some of the things that I have been putting off to the MS scarring on my brain may not be what I think, so I am going to go through some testing with a neuro-psychologist for Adult Attention Deficit Disorder. 

Anybody want to come trade places with me for a while and do all this stuff for me?  lol, just kidding!  It could be a lot worse and I will deal with these things in the same manner that I have dealt with everything else, with faith in my Lord and trust in my Father!!

Just thought I should fill you in.

Love and hugs,

Terri

    1. Thanks Andy!! You know that I will 🙂 Mark will be happy to know that we have something specific now to work on, he was tired of seeing me so sick! It worries him more when he doesn’t know what to do to help me, God love him! XOXO!!

  1. Hey mum, its good that the docs have figured out what exactly is the problem. i think the meds now will be more direct and less experimental in nature. which is good coz that’s what needs to be done. i wish u a speedy recovery 🙂 and keep us posted.

  2. Terri as a fellow participant in every test available and then some (I know I just bought my cardiologist his new Jag) I sympathize but to look on the positive every test brings them closer to a diagnoses and they are making great strides in medicine everyday so stay positive and you are right Gods will be done , no matter what we do. Prayers and hugs my friend ((()))

    1. Thanks Len!! I know you can sympathize completely. I’m just glad not to be spinning out in limbo any more. I have a goal now and I always like that better. And, as always, I don’t worry myself too much about it ’cause I’ve seen where I’m going – I’m not afraid 🙂 xxxxxx

    1. Thanks Terry! I’m just glad to know what I need to work on instead of just being stuck in a vicious virus cycle. Thanks for the prayers, I can always use more than I have of them 🙂 xxxxx

  3. Praying for you, Terri. I am having some health issues myself. I finally have an appointment with a gastroenterologist on the 19th.
