Do you have moments when you see something in a shop and just know you have to buy it? I had a moment like that last week. It was school break here and a friend and I had promised her teenage daughter to have a high tea when she was off school. The place we went to is called the Esperterhoeve. It is a shop in a beautiful old Dutch farm with a little cafe at the back. After having eaten until we needed to shop off our calories, I discovered a set of beautiful black mirrors. I saw them in the distance and knew I had to buy them. They would really bring out our headboard just perfectly. Jos has now jokingly (I hope) said he hopes we have enough mirrors. *grins*
I had hoped to be giving you an update on my thyroid condition by now as I had my next appointment at the hospital. I had been given the choice of either having surgery or trying radioactive therapy. I choose the therapy which will take up to a year before we know if it is effective. It means being in isolation for most of March. If this is not successful, I will still need surgery in a year's time. I do not have hyper or hypo thyroidism which would have made it easier to treat with medication instead.
The specialist decided to repeat the ultrasound since the hospital where I am now going did not do the first one. I went to have it done this week thinking it would all be routine but ended up having to have a biopsy done right after they finished. I am afraid we are back to waiting. The appointments are set up for the radioactive therapy but it now all depends on how the results of the biopsy turn out.
