My MRI came back clean, and there's no need for any follow-up testing until my next ultrasound, which I think will be in June or July, and we'll do the Thyrogen trial again in a year and see what's what. Yes, my tumor marker is creeping up, and perhaps eventually we'll find something operable, but until then, there's no point in worrying or holding my life hostage to what could be.
Mom's tests all came back great, too -- no blockages, no new medications needed. She had really low blood sugar and few other minor things going on which conceivably could combine to cause her loss of speech. She needs to start taking iron and eat more protein, but other than that, she's doing great.
Last but most unexpectedly, I had a performance review in which I wrangled 4 extra points out of my principal. That doesn't sound like much, but each additional point represents a significant victory on a different performance metric. We're evaluated using a 21-metric rubric. My overall score still looks horrendous because of how they weight the scores, but I'll take it.
