Wednesday Weigh in - 177.4

Spring in Texas is NOT my friend. Got over a cold, but the tree pollen has been VERY high for the past few weeks and it's kicking my butt pretty bad. Sleep is off, eating is off, walking when I can. Got blood work results (NO, autocorrect, I did NOT want to type bloodworm!) ordered by the cardiologist and thyroid levels were FINE, but another test which I didn't KNOW he'd ordered was twice the normal level.

The interesting part, it was something Kendall's doctors in Denver told Ken & I to get checked, but my senile doctor at the Academy didn't know what I was talking about. Hmmmmm, looking forward to asking him why he ordered that test and what it means. Research on WebMD showed that it's tied to high cholesterol, which I've NEVER had so it's a little weird. Wondering if it's related to the macrocytosis that has my family doc puzzled. I look forward to talking with her about it. (It was tied in with the clotting issues my son had, so I'm really curious about it. I asked his CF doctor today and she wasn't sure either, but said she would look into it and ask the cardiologist about it.)
