Thyroid Troubles

Meggar was back to the Student Health Clinic this week since her bronchitis was not better after a round of antibiotics. The doctor immediately noticed her thyroid was swollen. A blood test confirmed slightly low thyroid function, but they don't want to start her on Synthroid yet. She is worried, but we have had her tested twice in the past three years and everything was normal both those times. So I am hoping to talk to her regular physician, too. Meanwhile they are giving her a B-12 shot to help with energy levels. We are praying for her. It is hard to hear about limits when you are only 20 years old.
