No more Avandia!

I saw my PCOS specialist last week, and guess what?! She's taken me off my Avandia! I've only been taking 2mg/day for the past year or so, but the last time I saw her, she said I'd likely have to take the Avandia forever b/c I wasn't willing to take a glucose tolerance test. But, when I saw her this time, she said she was ready to take me off. I, of course, have to do blood draws at regular intervals to check my glucose levels, but as long as they remain in the normal range, I'm off it! Woo-hoo!

On an unfortunate note, the class I'd registered for this summer which would have applied to my program was canceled at the last minute, literally. So, I scrambled to find something else that might apply. So, I'm taking Electronic Media in Art. Not totally sure it's going to work, but for the most part, I'm enjoying it. (I had kind of a difficult time with the first critique.) See my work at Flickr.

I have no clue what Avandia is but I am glad you are happy! :o)

Thanks, Jill. Avandia's an Insulin sensitizer that's been in the news recently b/c of the possibility of causing heart problems. So, that may be why she decided to go ahead and take me off. Either way, I'm happy it's gone! Although, from all the blood work I had, my surgeon's asked me to start taking sublingual B12, so I've just replaced one with another. Although, the B12's a lot cheaper. :)
