Update on Robin

She’s doing much better.  Her meds were lowered a bit because the levels were raising in her blood, perhaps due to a change in diet or exercise.  She’s lost some weight, as well.

That wasn’t the issue because her levels were lowered to where they need to be.  The problem, apparently, was that since she was skipping a dose every few days to lower those levels, it screwed with her routine.  She knew she was supposed to take a certain pill at a certain time, and the disruption set her episodes off.  She’s just that delicate.

I’d taken her to the doctor last week after they had a current blood test done (everything was as it should be) and we tried to figure out what’s going on.  I suggested changing her dosage so that she’s still taking a pill at her usual hours, and he wrote a new prescription, figuring it was worth a shot.

It worked!  Things are fine again.  Happy dance!

  1. Hurray! Yip yip whooh-hoot! And well done with the solution-coming-up-with, Jerrod.

    I don’t know if you’ve seen the latest Buffy comic, but there’s a letter that says, “I was so moved by Robin Balzer being drawn into the story that I actually cried.”

  2. Thanks, Pointy! Although we’ve been getting all the Buffy and Angel comics (got subscriptions through TFAW.com), we are SO far behind on reading. I’m gonna hunt that down and read it to her. I appreciate the heads up, and still thrilled that she inspires people.

    I know she inspires me everyday.

  3. Glad to read that she’s doing better. *Hugs* to you and her both.
