I think Rusty is worried that I’m going to be Grouchy Mommy (or possibly worse, Weepy Mommy) after my thyroid surgery. He keeps making lighthearted comments to that effect. One example: I was telling him that I was thinking about giving up coffee. He joked something to the effect of “No coffee AND no thyroid? Is that a good idea?”
Now, it’s very possible that he’s just trying to keep things light. However, in my experience, there is always some truth at the bottom of humor.
To be perfectly fair, I am a little concerned about how I will feel with only half a functioning thyroid, and that half possibly impaired by an autoimmune process. But I feel like with a little thyroid hormone replacement, I will probably be able to sort it out.
Google remission for several days now. I feel much better. Just waiting for June 7th.
