Well, it took seeming forever but I finally got my Tg number today, sort of. I won't complain, because the news was good. The independent lab doesn't test to the level that the endo's does, so all I got was "less than 2.5", which is still quite useful, since it's less than 3.4, which is what it was last time.
I was so happy when I got off the phone after hearing that news that I actually jumped up and down a few times. DS1 thought that was just a little strange, and asked me about it, so I explained I had good news. Yay!
I called DH right away, and then talked to my mom, one of my sisters, one of my brothers -- that's enough to ensure that it will percolate through the family grape vine. And my MIL called to tell me how happy she was that the news is good, for now.
I now have a reasonable basis for hoping that maybe I won't need any more surgery or RAI. Who knows what will show up on the scan in May? We'll have to wait for that, and, as I like to say, jump off that bridge when we come to it. For now, I think I can deal with that.
