Snow, snow, and more snow and no thyroid cancer testing...yet

Folks, I can't even tell you the amount of snow that we have here in Northern Virginia...BEFORE the blizzard that hit last night. Picture to the left was before the the latest round of winter weather hit. Now, probably eight inches more have fallen since 5:30 PM lastnight plus a 40 mph wind. And it's still snowing.

Crazy is all I can say. I'm grateful that we have power as many in the DC Metro do not...thousands, in fact.

As a result, my thyroid cancer testing has been rescheduled for the last week of February. I'm fine with that. All of us here need to focus on staying warm and safe.


  1. Hey, we'll be going through it at the same time. I was called today and told I couldn't start the shot series on Monday because - oops - they forgot two weeks ago that the hospital is closed on Monday. One extra week of LI diet for both of us, huh? How are you doing with it?

  2. MommaMindy, I can't believe we'll be doing our scans, etc. at the same time in two week!

    I actually don't have to do the low iodine diet prior to the scans as my doctor has me take the thyrogen shots instead. I feel for you...I've had to do the low iodine diet before when I did my RAI treatment. I thought I was going to lose my mind without milk products, etc.

    Please let me know how your scan goes!
