    Could use some good thoughts...

    Had a thyroid ultrasound on Tuesday because, apparently, something out of the ordinaty showed up on my CT scan. (Not that they were looking for this with the CT scan...They "just happened to be in the neightborhood!" *AARGH!)

    Anyway, after the US I asked the tech if she saw anything...They are so darned uncommunicative! She did offer me this: "I saw what the doctors were looking for." Ah, is that a good thing or a bad thing? "I can't say." Well, if you tell me it isn't thing to worry about, I will sleep better. "The doctor will let you know."

    So......Here I am! My doctor appointment is on Tuesday, and between then and now, I promise you I will have a most vivid imagination!

    If you all could send me a few happy thoughts, the time will go more pleasantly I am sure. Please ...

    Rachael --

    Please know that you will be in my thoughts on Tuesday. Grab hold of the Warrior Stone and hang on!

    And be sure to let us know what you find out!

    Dearest Rachel!

    You will be in my thoughts and prayers now through Tuesday and beyond. You tell us all not to worry until there's something specific to worry about, but we all know how hard that is! Hang in there, girl, and do keep us posted.

    Many blessings, Di

    Yes Rachael I'll be driving the bus this time and I will promise to get you to your appointment even if I have to stop and ask directions. I haven't been driving on the curb in years as our Fort Worth friend tattled on me once. Thinking positive thoughts now.
    rachael67 replied to jaydbraz's response:
    Dawn, Di and Jaydee, thanks so much for your good thoughts. I cannot begin to tell you how much better that makes me feel. Honestly!!

    Now about that driving, Jaydee...???? It is reassuring to know you will ask directions, but reminding me of the curbs...??? Well, I'll just toss that in with my other worries!

    Will keep you posted.

    Hello Rachael ~
    Long time and here I am! Also nice to see JD here too.
    Will be doing a prayer for you Rachael and dont worry..
    Last couple of days have been scorching temps...and bring it will be in S.C. this summer and NF
    we will be doing some travelling...yahooooooo. My husband is retiring end of next month, so we will have a different ball game going on, right? Its time for him to leave stopping to smell the roses...exactly what we are going to do!
    And where is the chat on this page?
    You take care Rachael.
    rachael67 replied to hihelenehere's response:
    Helene, welcome home! And thank you for your good thoughts! (I will put the results in a separate post.)

    Ah! A husband who is retired! May I warn you that is a two sided coin? For the most part it is lovely and most enjoyable! BUT....Keep in mind that prior to this, your home has been your office. You have been in charge, done things on your schedule, etc. Suddenly, there is a new employee who thinks HE is the boss! Can make for some adjustment for both of you!

    The good part (beside the time you will have with each other now) is that as the years go by, we, most fortunately, mellow! What at one time might have seemed a reason to throw in the towel, seems to merely be a reason to let it air dry a while and it will be fine! So, congrats to both of you, appreciate each other just a little more each day, and share the new miracles just waiting each dawn!

    Blessings ...and roses!

    PS...Chat did not (as yet) make the cut with the new changes. BUT....PLEASE come post often!! Our "experienced and mellowed" members are missed!

    I am so sorry you are having a problem. The techs
    are uncommunicative and I guess it's in case they
    don't give us the proper information. Of course
    that is no help. And no But, my dear Rachael,
    Just a prayer and you must please know you are
    not alone. My thoughts are with you as you take
    on another worry. You do not deserve another worry.
    I will be with you on Tuesday and wish you the
    very best outcome.
    I do wish you happy thoughts

    Aw Faith! How very, very sweet and caring of you! Thank you!

    However, if you note the date of my first post, you will see it was quite some time ago! BUT...I've all sorts of new troubles that have come and gone since then so prayers and good thoughts are ALWAYS muchly appreciated...As is a good Friend!
