Perplexed and anxious...and some soccer

I am a bit perplexed about how I feel the past few days, which is more exhausted than ever. I thought once I did the radioactive iodine treatment and got started on my thyroid replacement medication (Levoxyl) that I would start feeling better. I actually feel worse than before I started my treatment. Worse in that...I have no energy and the cough continues. I'm very tired...exhausted.

Anxious...about tomorrow's scan at Inova Fairfax. I have a follow up scan at 10 AM to see how effective the radioactive iodine treatment was. It's been almost two weeks since I was in the hospital and took the dose. I'm hoping I'm among the majority who have thyroid cancer for whom it is highly effective and I don't need another round or dose of it.

And soccer news, as promised. It was a big win for the Storm today, 5-0. Morgan played well, had several great passes and at least one assist on a goal that I saw. It poured rain right before the game during their warm ups, just enough to get them drenched before the game. Me, I forgot my umbrella but was able to share with another Mom who plans better than I do for these weather type things. Their Saturday game was cancelled not because of rain but the fields were soggy from the massive amounts of rain on Friday.

OK, heading to bed...as, you may remember from three paragraphs ago, I'm exhausted.
