One week into the new year and it’s the start of a new chapter in my life. As some of you may know, I retired at the end of 2018 and I fully intend to enjoy the fruits of my last 30 years of labor. And with that, I look to renew my efforts to send my Graves’ Disease into remission. To that end, my blood test result is still showing me as being hyper, but not as bad (low) from my previous results this past summer.
T3: 134 (ref 71-180)
TSH: 0.022 (0.45-4.5) – much better than last summer’s 0.009 but still a ways to go
Free T4: 1.57 (0.82-1.77)
So how am I spending my time now that I don’t have work to occupy me? That’s still being worked out. For now, more frequent and longer walks, starting to learn pickleball, trying to find time to start golfing again, and catching up with friends and family, local and afar. All this is with mom in tow, which creates its own set of challenges. But as the saying goes, a bad day out still beats a good day in the office :-). Decompress, decompress, decompress!
Cheers to 2019!
