a blessing in disguise

This being our second loss in 9 months the fertility dr ordered extensive labs on Hubs and I. So far my has come back "normal" which is ok I guess just means we still have no reason why we lost the babies. I have thyroid labs on Monday since I haven't had them checked in a while.

Hub's labs did come back with a issue. His thyroid levels are through the roof which is no beuno. The dr is testing him for Graves disease and we are waiting for those results to come back. From what I gather having too high levels of thyroid causes serious health issues the worst is sudden cardiac death. Our PCP told us not to "go there" until we have all the testing done because it is treatable with meds and/or surgery. WHEW!

I'm so glad the fertility dr pushed for BOTH of us to be tested! It has given us the heads up to a situation that needed addressed and gets Hubs on the road to wellness. Praise God!
