We heard back from the doctor today on Kyla and Kara's lab work. They wanted to raise Kyla's meds but decided to wait and let her take it steady for 2-3 weeks then do labs again.
Kara's ultrasound came back abnormal. Which the doctor said her thyroid felt a little funny and uneven.. That was the reason for the ultrasound. So now after he looked over the ultrasound with a doctor that specializes in thyroid alone she will be seeing this other doctor. They are going to do a fine needle aspiration or biopsy on Kara's thyroid.. To me biopsy strikes fear in my heart.. This is My baby girl! Well all 3 of them are my babies whether they like it or not but for her to have to go through this.
Kara and I talked about it and the fact that they will be testing it to see if its cancerous or not.. She is extremely calm about it. She understands the possibility and seems fine.. but you know the saying that Still waters run deep.. She is my calm and patient girl rarely gets hyper active about anything.. When she cries its silent big tears breaking your heart kind.. That's what happens when she gets blood drawn and they dig to much. Or when she is scared. She gets big eyes and makes no sound. How do you deal with the fear in your girl's face??
They have all went to bed and are getting ready to go spend the night with friends tomorrow who are on Christmas break.. I feel like I could just cry and cry.. I don't want to let any of them out my sight till this is over and done.
Of course being the googling type person I had to google Thyroid nodules.. and found that more than 95% of all thyroid nodules are benign.. However being under 20 yrs old ups those chances of it being malignant slightly.
The impatient part is waiting for the other doctors office to call to set up the appointment to meet the Thyroid specialist and more than likely they will do the biopsy that day.. When I have a date I can focus on what needs to be done. The trip is about 3 hours one way.. It will require a lot of planning on our part and hope the weather doesn't interfere(It is almost January). But that really is the least of my concerns. I guess this is where that Trusting thing comes in huh??
