Hey everyone, back from vacation.  It was so nice to get away and relax...had a great time. 
Ok, now for the update.  I had mentioned to my Endocrinologist about the lymph nodes and she suggests that I wait until my thyroid levels out before going through the tests for lymphoma.  She explained that your thyroid can cause your lymph nodes to become enlarged when your levels are off, which mine are really off. 
She is still concerned about the high glucose levels and liver enzymes but at least if it turns out I have developed diabetes it's a pretty controllable disease (with the proper diet and exercise).  This would be easier than usual for me because my husband is diabetic (has been for 12 years now).  The only concerning issue is my thyroid doc doesn't think the rest of my symptoms are thyroid more questions!! 
Anyhoo, just wanted to give you a little update and see how everyone is doing.

Hey TurtleGirl!!

Good doc visit!! Sounds like u'r doc is looking at everything and taking good care of u!! Please do let us know how this all goes and if it turns out to be diabetes. I really hope not, but then again, it is controllable as u said. Some things can be the lesser of the evils. My prayers are with u and i'm hoping to hear good things from u soon! Take good care friend.
