My Health Update

I have been on my thyroid tablets for 3 weeks now and I went back for another blood test last Friday. In the UK we use a different set of numbers for the TT4 test and the normal is between 18 and 25. When I had the last test my result was 55 so quite high. The vet rang my mum yesterday with my latest results. Can you see me and my dad smiling? My reading is now 21. Right slap bang in the middle of normal! My kidney results are good too. That means that my 1 small tablet a day is the right dose for me.
I go for another check up and have my blood stolen again in 2 months time to make sure I am still on the right dose. If you look you can see my poor shaved throat.
The only thing that wasn't right is that I have traces of blood in my urine. That means I have to have antibiotics for 10 days in case I have an infection. After that mum has to chase me with her plastic container again to get another pee sample. She is very glad I pee standing up like a mancat when I am outdoors.
