My doctors appointment was yesterday and I didn't find out much. The lump in my throat is a lymph node and not my thyroid. I had several other lymph nodes swell yesterday. My neck is very painful. It feels like I have strep throat but the doctor says I am not sick and he doesn't know why my lymph nodes are swollen. He is sending me for an ultrasound of my thyroid and my lymph nodes this Friday morning. I will not find out anything for at least a few days, though.

Along with this uncertainty, I feel strongly that I have cancer. I have many symtoms that I can't explain that really are bothering me. Not every day, but when it happens, it is very bad. Last time it did was yesterday. I woke up hardly able to breathe (very short of breath), I was fainting over and over, I was pale, my whole body was shaking really bad (for hours). This seems to happen every time I lose 2 pounds in one day. I step on the scale almost every morning and yesterday it was 2 lbs lower than the previous few days. I have lost 14 lbs more that I gained during this last pregnancy. I am down about 70 lbs now in 6 months. I am NOT trying to lose weight. I am very hungry all of the time (a symptom of my hyperthyroid) and I eat every time I am hungry. I have more than 3 full meals a day. I found a lump in my neck last week a few days after my voice changed and I became hoarse. These are symptoms of thyroid cancer. I go back to the doctor tomorrow to see what the doc has to say about this. I am hoping he goes ahead and does an ultrasound on my neck to better see the 'lump'.
On a lighter note :), My little baby has the most beautiful smile and she is always happy :)

Lord, Please be with Cora's family as they go through this journey of loosing a child. Please give them comfort and peace. Please carry them when they are not strong enough to carry on. Please help them understand that their child is in a better place and is not in pain any longer.
In your precious and sweet name, Amen.
Please pray for her family, The McClenahans.

On another note, this morning when I stepped on the scale it was a pound lower than it had been. Which probably isn't a good thing. It probably means my thyroid issue is getting worse and not better. I will find out in 3 weeks when I get it checked again. I am now officially the smallest I have ever been as an adult.
Elizabeth was tested today for any developmental delays and they found she had NONE :) YAY!
Not sure what else to say for now. Below is a pic of our family taken a few months ago when my youngest was 3 months old.
