Thanks Chiefsgirl.... not a wine drinker (I have osteoporosis), but consoled myself nicely with charcoal chicken, potato bake and finished with a big piece of homemade chocolate cake covered with Maltesers :-))
Ertgirl.... I've already had my thyroid zapped with nuclear medicine (about 6 years ago). For about 3 years it was up and down. Then for the past three years it's been pretty stable. In fact about 8 months ago my endocrinologist said not to come back to him again, and that just my GP could monitor it, but I definitely need to go back since those numbers in the past month have been all over the shop.
