really different things

Are any of you hockey fans?  I joined a fantasy hockey league that a friend is running so there'd be enough folks but I know next to nothing about hockey.  I've never seen a game live, never even watched a game from beginning to end.  I've been pre-ranking players for my draft tomorrow based on things like their fantasy rankings from yahoo, how strong their teams are supposed to be, if they have cool names, and if they're cute.  (Hey it's a system.  Not a good one but...)  Anyway, if anyone has a favorite player to recommend I'd be all for it.


Also, I never came back to update after my actual scan was done.  I got the call from my endo on Wednesday, the scans looked great.  They showed minimal uptake in the areas you'd expect (stomach, salivary glands, nasal passages) but nothing in the neck, or the lymph nodes, or in a random other place that could be scary.  They also did a specific uptake scan to measure how much RAI was absorbed by the area around where my thyroid number was, and the number was negligible enough to read as zero.  So that means we were successful in killing my thyroid dead to give the cancer no place to grow back in - and that as of one year later I remain cancer free.  Woot.
