Two Things Tuesday

I had a Dr.’s appointment last month because I have this weird lump on the side of my hand and also all my joints had been hurting. I had diagnosed myself with rheumatoid arthritis. But after going to the actual Dr. instead of Dr. Google, and after having blood work and X-rays I now have the results of what is actually wrong with me.

2 Things that aren’t right.

1. My blood work came back and my TSH (Thyroid-Stimulating Hormone) levels were high which meant that my thyroid is not producing enough thyroid hormones. In other words I have hypothyroidism, and not rheumatoid arthritis. I have made friends with a tiny little pill and it has made a world of difference, I’ve been taking it now for a little over 2 weeks and almost all of my symptoms (plus some I didn’t even know I had) are gone.

2. This thing on my hand

Here are my x-rays, in case you aren’t a radiologist I’ll tell you what that thing is.

It is an osteochondroma which basically is a developmental abnormality of bone. I go to see a orthopedic specialist tomorrow and should have more information. But this usually something that doesn’t cause much concern.

This one doesn't show anything, just thought it was cool

I love looking at X-rays that is why I posted them for you to look at too.

I wonder what *Bones* could tell about me by looking at these.

What are your two things?

I found this on my doorstep after Avrah had been playing out there this afternoon.

Day 46

It is either a very small snowman or a very large snowman's poo.


  1. lol@ large snowman's poo.

    Maybe I should take a picture of the weird thing on my hand too? I should probably see a doctor, too, but meh...
