Thyroid Cancer

It’s the Final Countdown…

It’s just a matter of days until I go radioactive. My doctor said I don’t need to do LID (low iodine diet) before I go in, but I am going to for at least 3 days anyway (hope it helps at this point). The following week I am told to do LID.

Monday is my last “normal” day of nothing.
Tuesday- thyrogen shot
Wednesday- thyrogen shot and labs
Thursday- RAI & isolation
(I admit, I have been looking at it like a radioactive staycation.  I am so looking forward to the solitude. Health permitting, I plan to sleep, pamper myself, and write in my book a ton!)
Friday- isolation
Saturday- isolation & homecoming
Sunday- Wednesday- home isolation
Thursday- Whole body scan
Friday- who knows…? 

I’m so ready. There’s so few hurdles left. 


Cancer can kiss my —.  😉

    Love it, great to approach it with humour, have a funny Simpsons picture to send to my kids while I’m in hospital. Had my first injection today … It hurts a little, and made my bum/hip/groin achy. I will try to post Wednesday night, my first night x

    I hope you are able to– I love reading your blog. I wish you the best and will pray for you. Thanks for the heads up on the shot causing soreness.

    Did you make the meme with the hulk?

    Would you believe that I found it on Google? I thought it was too funny not to use for this post.
    When you’re bored, just Google “[name] meme” and click on the images. Some of the funniest things will pop up.
