a racing-pekingese

After the dogshow yesterday, we went for a walk together at the Zuigerplaswood.Here are dogs allowed to walk of leash, so Chimay, Eoos and Ari took off... They never go far, but they like a good run.Ari did his best to keep up with the Chow-ladies, a little racing-pekingese!A last picture of Ari and Eoos, after this one it got too dark to take pictures.

Today I went to the hospital to see the internist, a nice short visit:
I have Hashimoto's thyroiditis, an autoimmune disease. In the next months the dosage of Thyrax will be upped every few weeks.
Although I don't feel much better, I am not getting worse either. But the TSH count last week was 56, a lot lower than the first test.
In 5 weeks time drawing blood again and in 6 weeks the next appointment.

Today I had my next appointment at the hospital, with the cardiologist.
My hart is doing well, there is only a bit of extra fluid in the way, there is extra fluid in my whole body, because of the thyroid problem. So the cardiologist thought it will go away on its own when the thyroid levels are back on track. This can take a while...

Next appointment on February 11th, then I will see the internist and hopefully hear more about my thyroid problem.
