Because of my high level of thyroid hormone, he's almost sure there is still cancer.  So I have to go get an injection (of thyroid?) two days in a row, then have a scan and do the radioactive iodine pill again. Oh joy. I'm just waiting now for someone from the doc's office to call and set all that up.  And if I do all that, and there is no sign of cancer, apparently he'll want to do a PET scan to be sure. It sounds like he's really sure I've still got thyroid tissue left and that it's cancerous.

I'm a little scared, but mostly I'm annoyed. Annoyed that I have to go into Milwaukee two days in a row for the shots, annoyed I have to have that RA again.  Annoyed that my stupid thyroid was so big they didn't get it all.  I thought I was done with all this! I feel good! Why doesn't this ever seem to end?

Okay, tantrum over.

LOL, I like pickles! And, since Lunch was late and I was very hungry, the noodles were the fastest thing I found to fix. And I like them, too. The iced tea was a batch I'd made a day or two ago and it had turned out just right, so it hit the spot, too.
