Everyone seems to be forgetting that the Supreme Court upheld the ACA as well as marriage equality. Thanks b/c I was genuinely worried now that I have a lifelong medical condition which requires routine labwork and medication.

Surgery itself was successful. I am sans goiter, can breathe normally and the incision is healing beautifully. I shouldn't have a bad scar at all.

Other than that I feel like microwaved crap and have been assured by the thyroidless ppl on the internet that this state of affairs will continue for the next couple of weeks until my body adjusts to its altered state. Still waiting to see an endocrinologist :/ and my follow up with my ENT was moved up to Monday because of me needing to go to the ER the day after I was discharged; my calcium levels got too low and you have no idea how sick that can make you :(

Seriously, this sucks.

Kaaaaaaaaaaaat *hug*

The ACA case was really weak... I wasn't that worried, but I'm glad it's over. Once people have had a few years to get used to the ACA it'll be extremely hard to go back to the old ways. I hope it will come to undercut a lot of US conservative bullshit, as there's only so long they can keep running on a platform of taking people's health insurance away.

Oh, I was quite aware of the ACA case! We have friends and relatives who depend on it. The Mr. and I have good benefits with our jobs, but we are always worried about people we know who aren't that fortunate. (And we both have chronic conditions ourselves.)

All in all, it was a very good week for our end of the political spectrum.

Glad the surgery went well; sorry for the current issues and wishing your as speedy and complete a recovery as possible.
