    ((((((((((((((((((((HUGS))))))))))))))))))) It is so very hard when we have to face those places and people that bring back those heart-wrenching memories. Just know you are not alone even when you can see us or hear us.

    We are doing fine, Lori. Gable looks and acts great. I showed my sister a recent picture of him and she couldn't believe how much he's slimmed down. I kept him on the 30mg, and he's getting one Apoquel (not sure I spelled it right) a day. At 2.2 I'm wondering when I should have him checked again.

    And Doree is doing okay, too. She won't take the pain pills anymore, no matter what I hide them in, and she seems fine, so we're just going to watch her.

    How are you?

    I'm doing ok, I just had a YAG procedure done on my left eye to get rid of some scar tissue that formed over the lens that was replaced 2 years ago, it is so nice to be able to see out of that eye again. Unfortunately the same thing happened to the right eye so I'll be getting that one done too soon.

    So glad to hear that Gable is doing great....that's awesome!!! And happy that Doree is holding her own, she's a tough broad!!!!

    I think my husband is going to have that procedure done. I'll have to ask him.

    I was hoping I was just imagining this, but I've noticed in the past few days that Gable seems to be drinking, eating and panting more. He's been on the 30 mg now for about four weeks. The resting cortisol was 2.2 two weeks ago. So he was two weeks on 30mg before testing. I am perplexed! I'm afraid to raise it even though he showed no signs of being too low. What do you think?

    Hey Joan, according to the pre-pill monitoring protocol, a dosing increase can be considered if symptoms remain or rebound with a pre-pill resting cortisol higher than 1.5. So if it were me, Id probably go ahead and see if the additional 10 mg. improves things.

    Thanks, Marianne. I'll see if that works!
