    I'm with Marianne. I wouldn't change ANYTHING if I found something that was working/helping. I would ride that wave for as long as possible.

    Thanks for the opinions and confirming my gut feeling. I'll leave well enough alone and "One day at a time" it.

    What is that saying, if it isn't broken, don't fix it.

    As long as everything was working well, I didn't worry about tweaking the meds, etc. For us at least, things would be stable for a couple months, then we'd have to tweak up or down usually. Which just goes to show the importance of follow up tests in the cushings lifestyle.

    I think you've done an excellent job so far and kudos for finally having some stability. Long may it continue!

    A belated happy birthday to you and Lolita! I agree with others -- you said it best ... "Lolita is doing great" -- why rock the boat?

    Hey Darrell,

    I was thinking about you guys today and hoping that Lolita is still doing well!

    Whenever you get a chance, we'd love to hear an update.

    Best wishes,
    Marianne

    Hi Marianne and everyone else,

    Glynda brought to my attention today that you'd posted and was asking about Lolita. She's doing good, still working on getting her dosage dialed in, it's been a year now. She's been on 60, 30, 25, 15, 18, and now we're going to switch to 8 mg BID. She's know as the Enigma by many being that she's 52 lbs, takes such a small dose and sometimes her cortisol goes up when it should be coming down and vice versa. Maybe the twice a day dosing will smooth things out a bit. Glynda has become a big influence on me and kinda taken me under her wing. She might even try putting bows in my hair like JuJu soon. You all have been a big influence over me and the DJ Pete experience has really changed me. I think it was her, at least she takes credit for it, that said "If you lose the owner, you lose the dog". I think about that every time I post. I ask myself all the time if maybe I'd acted differently during that situation if things may have turned out differently with Coda. My girlfriend says nothing would have changed that outcome but Pete, but I still wonder and play the "What If" game with myself. Enough of that, I hope everything is going well over here and feel that helping out on the facebook page is where I need to be. I've not forgotten any of you and appreciate everyone here that helped me and Lolita. I'll check in every now and again and I send people here when the wild west of facebook is too much for them or if I know one of the experts here could help with a specialized situation.

    Take Care and Thanks again for asking about us - Darrell and Lolita

    Great to hear a good report on Lolita. She certainly has been a poster dog for the some bigger dogs need smaller doses saying.

    As with so many things in life, we learn as we go. All we can do is learn from each experience and go on, applying what we learned.

    You are much appreciated both here and especially on Facebook, where you are such a help to many.

    Okay if you end up with bows in your hair at any point, I want a picture!

    Darrell, thanks so much for posting and letting us know you guys are OK! I can only "second" what Sharlene has said above, and also tell you that although we miss seeing more of you over here, I know you are doing a great service by facilitating the Facebook site. I wish I could be of help over there, too, but there's just not enough time in the day to let us do all the things we want. So I totally understand why that site needs to be your priority now. Heck, I've never even registered on Facebook just so as to have an excuse as to why I can't go and look at all the gazillion vacation pics posted by my friends and family. "I'm so sorry, but I just don't have permission to view them...I'm sure the kids all look so cute!"

    Anyway, we'll always welcome you back whenever you have time to post a personal update (which we hope you'll do every now and then!). And in the meantime, carry on with all your good work on FB. I send my best wishes to you and Lolita, today and everyday.

    Marianne
