First I want to thank each and everyone of you who have been thinking and praying for my family!! It was been a really rough week...but I am happy to say it is all over!! The doctors have finally figured out what is causing all of my husbands heart problems...a hyper thyroid!! Can you believe that one little tiny gland can cause so many problems!! It was making his heart work 2-3 times harder than it should!! I am so thankful that this is finally over...yes we have lots of follow-ups and appointments with specialists, but at least they know what it is!! He is finally home from the hospital too...which is another wonderful blessing!! So again, thank you all of you for your love and support!!!



  1. That is absolutely wonderful news, Jackie!!!!! You sound so relieved and that just warms my heart! Take care, my Friend, and know that I am thinking of you and your family.

  2. Fabulous news Jackie....
    Take Care :)x

  3. I am so happy you have some encouraging words from the doctors... big hugs to you my friend...stay strong!

  4. Oh Jackie I am so glad everything is going to be o.k. with your husband! I too suffered from Graves disease and had to have my Thyroid radiated about 3 years ago!I know have my thyroid under control with meds that I have to take for the rest of my life:(. I know exactly how your husband feels, no fun!
    The disease is uncommon in men but my brother also suffered from it. The disease is very hereditary so watch your little ones for symptoms!

  5. Great news Jackie... Trust me, I ALL about thyroid issues... That little gland is a beast... Glad everything is under control!

  6. Good news for you! That is great that they figured it out! That exact same scenario happened to me - minus the hospital stay! Now, a little over 8 years later I'm hypothyroid on synthroid and my life has gone on with no complications! I wish him, and you, the best of luck while you're on the road to stabilization! That can take a while but he'll feel SO much better soon! Hang in there!
