Here I am at 6 days post thryoidectomy. To tell the truth, I am having a hard time trying to think of something to write about today, but I wanted to assure everyone that I am still doing fine. I am, doing fine, that is. Although my soft palate is still sore and I am still on a bland liquid diet, it is not as bad as yesterday. My neck incision is still dry and clean with minimal swelling and I am counting down the days until the steri-strips come off (4 days and counting...). I am past the half-way point with the steri-strips. Yeah!! I still have enough energy to get through the day without napping and am not feeling tired after I walk.
Today I did note that I lost some eyebrow hair along with the hair on my head. I know that this can be a symptom of unbalanced thyroid levels but, as I am not noticing any other symptoms, I am going to chalk it up to normal.
It is a dark day outside today the sky is gray and dreary. The air feels cold and heavy and I have always been prone to mood swings based on the weather. Still I don't feel sad or stressed at all, just quiet and introspective. I feel like I'd like to curl up with a good book or good movies for the whole day. I won't though, because I don't want to be the object at rest that stays at rest. I will do chores, go for a walk, pick the kids up from school and look forward to the day when I can actually run and work-out again!
