After six weeks of religiously taking my thyroid medication as prescribed, I had my follow-up blood test this morning and already got the results.  This all started in August 2019 when the numbers were low (.16 IU/ml) and the safe range is .30 to 4.50 IU/mL - the doctor decreased the strength of the medication I was taking.  In March the numbers went up to 4.58 IU/mL and then I had to modify how I took the medication and strictly take it on an empty stomach and not eat or drink anything for at least 30 minutes.  Today it was even higher at 6.75 IU/mL. I haven’t heard from my doctor as to what the next step will be.

I finished the Tunisian Crochet blanket (throw) that I started about six weeks ago.  The last few days, I have been so obsessed that my fingertips were started to be sore. It measures 57” x 57” and has 27,792 stitches.  It will be warm and cozy next winter.  What will next project be?
