      Hip surgery went well. I stayed in the hospital from Friday till Tuesday morning. Came home on crutches and am hobbling around quite well.

      I have a lot of stairs in my house so I'm pretty confined to the couch but everyday is getting better. I'm still taking pain meds every four hrs but if I sleep through them at night I don't wake up in pain, just discomfort.  Have quite a long incision on my left flank, stitches come out on the 25th.

      If all looks well after the Ortho appt. I will have scans the 29th and start my redose on Nov. 1st!

      I'm actually excited, as crazy as that sounds. I think doing it again will really zap these bastard spots out of my thyroid! And I just have to get past 8 weeks of crappiness! At least I'll be done by christmas!

      Guess that's it for now! Thanks for all the support!

                  Kellie,

                   

                  Great hearing from you.  You have an amazing attitude.  I can sure understand why you are excited to get back on your treatment.  Keep us posted.  Be careful hobbling..with your little ones (people and pets) underfoot.

                   

                  Stay Strong
