I have been better at taking meds lately~~ i moved them to the kitchen window (where I can't miss seeing them). I still am extremely tired and crash every night by 9pm. I don't get my levels checked again until Jan, but thinking I will call endo to see if we can do an extra blood test this week and then compare it to the one scheduled for Jan.
I know that Graves effects everyone differently so maybe the "perfect" numbers for me haven't been found yet.

Over the last week I have been fighting off a horrible 'bug'. Houston & Braydon have also been sick. Houston is well and Braydon & I are recovering. However, Randy (DH) is in bed SICK :(
Much to my amazement, my eyes did not seem to get worse this time. They were never dry, itching, irritated or any thing else. I am thankful for that.
Anyone know about energy levels in relation to T3 or T4 levels?

We just got back home from a trip to send off our oldest son. He is going to Koera for a year! I miss him already. However, God has filled up my life. These new additions to our family are a huge blessing. Houston, Keeley & Braydon made the trip to Little Rock exciting and adventure filled. Casey kept us grounded with the reality that our family unit is now much bigger than before! I am truely blessed~


Also our daughter Emily had her baby right before we left. Welcome to Kiera!!

Here is an updated picture of my eyes. My left eye is still "big & buggy". However, I have depth perception now and the light only hurts in some instances (like twilight). I am truely blessed.

I am about the stupidest person around.........................

Somehow I FORGOT to take my meds for a couple of days(3) . I didn't understand why I was all shaky, and dizzy, and sick feeling. When hubby asked me about the meds- I started to cry. Because I instantly knew that I didn't take them that morning and couldn't remember when the last time was.
I know that I am forgetful, but come-on. I have to take these stupid pills for the rest of my life. How could I forget?

I am so excited about today. I am taking the children on a "nature walk" thru the woods. This is something that I would not have even thought possible 6 months ago!
Please pray for these children - they are in much need of God's healing.
