It was kind of a sucky day today until I got home just now. We have been given the word at work that this will, in fact, be our 3rd week of overtime. I generally like overtime, since I have this addiction to food and shelter, but after a couple of weeks of 56-hours plus at work, it begins to get old. At least we were able to go home at regular time today--tomorrow starts the OT. I really need some time here at the apartment. I told one of my co-workers that cleaning my apartment is like mowing the jungle--it looks nice for a day or so, but then the creepers start coming back. I guess the cleaning will wait for me, though; it appears not to want to start without me.
Anyway, to the "...until I got home" part. I got a notice in the mail from the endocrinologist--which I have been waiting 3 weeks to receive, BTW. It is the results of my last blood work. She says that I may cut back my medication again (yea!!!!!), from 6 pills a day to four. I originally was taking 9 per day, and was cut back to 6 in May, I think. I've been told that the first reduction was somewhat of a miracle (by someone else with Graves disease), so big ups to God for doin' it again! Sounds like I'll have something to be thankful for on Thanksgiving Day. (As if there's nothing else and I have to hunt around for something.)Woohoooooo!!!!!!!
