    The vet called after he spoke again with the specialist and the suggestion was to add an additional 5mg at night, so that he would be on 10mg in the am and then 10 at night. At first I thought we should wait until we get back from our trip to Williamsburg (9/26 - 9/30), but then decided we would start it the other day and I'll have him tested before we leave. So far, so good. No change that I can see, but I did get him a cooling vest, which he loves!, and does seem more comfortable. He actually lets me put it on without any fuss and then lays down and enjoys it.

    So we shall see around the 19th or 20th whether the extra 5mg is doing anything.

    Hi Joan, that’s great about the cooling vest, and we’ll all be hoping the increase will help some, too. Per the guidelines associated with pre-pill testing, an increase is indeed consistent with Gable’s resting cortisol level in the face of unresolved symptoms. I know it’s been quite a roller-coaster with him and his cortisol levels, though. Hopefully this dose will finally turn out to be just right! We’ll be watching for further updates, that’s for sure.

    Yes Marianne, I remembered you had said that before, so I figured we would go for it.

    My son Jeremy is watching them all while we are away and I know he will be keeping a close eye on him. He's already been told he has to pick up the poop in the backyard every day so he can be sure Gable doesn't get diarrhea (I really just said that so he wouldn't leave me five days of poop to clean up when I got home!)
