So, it’s November. We headed across the bridge last night for some Trick or Treating with Megan, Dave, and Charlie.
Our Governor has postponed Halloween in Jersey until Monday due to Hurricane Sandy. There are a lot of people up in North Jersey who still do not have power. Some shore towns are still under water. It’s still a mess.
That’s why we went to Pennsylvania. It was Charlie’s first time trick or treating, and she had a blast! We didn’t stay out long because it was cold. The little ones couldn’t take it. So, I’ll probably take Trinity out for a little bit on Monday. We’ll also hand some candy out after she’s done.
Megan made us a delicious dinner after we were done. Now I can say that I actually do like tofu, although Trinity doesn’t. We didn’t get home until almost 10pm, and it was a school night! It’s amazing how fast time flies when you’re with awesome friends!!
Here are a few photos from last night. I only brought my point and shoot camera, so the quality of these photos are a bit lower than usual..
In other news, I had my endocrinologist appointment today. It went pretty well. He was really nice, but I felt like he skipped a bunch of my symptoms while he was reading my list.
That point aside, I’m making progress, I guess. He said that it probably is not my thyroid, which I was already aware of. He actually thinks it might be the very beginning of diabetes. That scares me a lot, but I, of course, did some googling. I don’t know if I agree with his assessment. It explains less than half of my symptoms. I’ll get the tests done, though, because he is the doctor after all. He stated that he was ordering some male hormone tests, because they’ll be elevated before other tests will pick up diabetes. Of course, there are other reasons my male hormones might be elevated. So, once the tests results come back, we’ll figure things out from there.
I was pretty proud of myself. I actually asked him if he could slap the progesterone testing on there, too. He stated that he completely understood my reasonings and put it on the lab slip. So, that’s a good thing!
I want to get the labs done as soon as possible, but I have to get the normal labs redone tomorrow at a health fair for Daniel’s work. They won’t accept results from other labs, hence the reason I need to get them redone. They also won’t do other labs.
I’m not sure if I should get blood taken twice in one day or just wait to get the Endo labs done on Monday. Either way, the results should take less than a week to come in.
Progress, I’m making it!
Anyway! How was your Halloween???
