HOT

29Oct09

I’m home and hot in the radioactivity sense.  The scan showed two spots on my neck- it is unclear as to whether they are lymph nodes or residual thyroid tissue.  I was given 50 milicuries with the hope that that will irradiate those two spots.  If not, I’ll have to do it again.  My salivary glands are all swollen, and when I take the anti-nausea medication (Zofran), I get a bad headache.  So lemonheads it is for me.

Thanks to a few great friends I have lots of DVDs to watch during my isolation.  I get to resume my normal diet, as was previously thought, on Saturday.

Hah, fun fact.  I was driven home in the trunk of a prius (so not completely in an enclosed trunk space, but still mighty uncomfortable).

The following pictures show some of the swelling from the outside (excuse the not so amazing looking person photographed- I need a shower):

    Well, obviously there was nothing in her lungs or knee, otherwise she would have said so.

  2. Stop stalking me Oleg Turkin, it’s creepy. I’m in enough pain already. Please, just leave me alone.

    You look good with glasses. I miss you.
