My 2nd biopsy

Yesterday afternoon I had my 2nd thyroid biopsy.  This time the surgeon did it and this time he took cells from both nodules.  I had more discomfort afterwards, but the procedure went much smoother.  Really I suppose it's minimal discomfort.  My throat inside felt scratchy and outside felt like I was strangled.  LoL  I also have this new reaction to bandages.  Every inch of where the 2 bandages were are burned.  As a matter of fact that is my biggest pain today.  So, I would say all in all it went very well.  He told me as soon as he gets the pathology back he will call me.  I liked him. 

I still haven't heard anything from my Pulmonologist or his nurse regarding the transplant.  She was to call me when there was news.  I am not going to be calling them every week, but the 26th of this month will be a month since I was told, so I will call then.  And, once a month thereafter.  That isn't bothering them too much is it?  I am trying my best to have patience and to not dwell on the "transplant" word.  So far I think I have done pretty well.  I am keeping busy with trying to lose weight, getting my house ready for fall, and looking forward to a optometry appointment the 12th... after which I am hoping with new glasses I will be able to go back to my bead work.  That will give me something to occupy my time and take my mind off food, sickness and transplant.
I have probably 10 pounds of beads (not an exaggerating) that have been set aside, and when Mom passed away I brought hers home.  She had just as many as I did.  It was a joy of ours to shop for them.  We would find all kinds of out of the way bead stores.  God, I miss her so much. 

My cookbook arrived and I am very pleased with it.  I think it will make nice gifts for my brothers, and I will get one for Brittney too.
