follow-up appointment

I posted a few weeks ago about how I"ve been feeling generally crummy, tired, no energy, stomachaches, and I'm unable to lose weight no matter what I eat or how much I exercise.  Well, I had more bloodwork done last week, and everything came back... "normal". Even though I'm still anemic. Apparently that's just normal for me and they don't feel like doing anything about it. They only tested my TSH level, not anything else to do with my thyroid, which is obviously acting up again. Mr Medic wants me to switch doctors.

In other news, our final home inspection is tomorrow, so we're really close to officially being Foster Parents! HOORAY!

In other news, homeschooling is going exceptionally well this week. I think we're realizing that we're in the home stretch - just two moreweeks to go with our curriculum before we break for the summer!

Tomorrow we'll be touring a local elementary school. I registered H. for 3rd grade there, but now I'm having serious doubts about sending her away to school. If you think of it, can you please pray that Mike and I can have wisdom and discernment about this? It's been weighing heavy on my heart lately.

Terrible, awful stomach cramps. I am afraid to leave the couch.
All I've eaten today is water and oatmeal, so I know it's not from something I ate.
And it's not a certain time of the month, either.

I've been feeling generally crummy for a few weeks, but can't figure out why.
I know my thyroid levels are low again. Waiting on more blood-work later this month. 

On a positive note, I did get in a good 30+ minutes of Bible devotions this morning before the kids woke up. And Hannah is doing all of her schoolwork today without complaining :) Yesterday she was in an awful mood and had a very poor attitude, so I'm glad today is better.
