back to work tomorrow . . .

I am as healed as I will be for now, so I am back to work tomorrow. I've been gone for four weeks! I have never been away from work for that long. Ever.

My next appointment is with the oncology-endocrinologist at MSKCC on August 5th. She will take over my care from the surgeon at that point. She will dose my thyroid meds, watch my calcium levels, and talk about the plan for the radioactive iodine treatments.

So, at this point, I am in a holding pattern for 2 more weeks. Guess I will enjoy the summer for now!

How is work going? It has to be tough after being gone for so long. I hope that they are going easy on you and that you continue to recover well after your first week back to work!

Jen, dude, that first week sucked. I ended up in my friend's office on Friday at 1;30pm sobbing how tired I was! She got me a pillow and warmed blanket from the unit she worked on, and I crashed on her floor. It was so weird! I want my hyperthyroid back! It was much better than being tired!!!
