Health update

I learned following my blood test last month that my serum calcium level had risen. My endocrinologist increased my medication accordingly. I'm now taking the maximum dose of four pills per day.
On Thursday, I'm scheduled for another blood test to see if my calcium level has responded. Physically, I'm feeling better than before the dosage was increased, so I suspect that the level has dropped.
Nonetheless, I would be obliged if you would continue to keep me in your thoughts and prayers. This isn't a single battle that needs to be won. It's a campaign.

I'm with you, Michael. Let's look for good news.

When my calcium levels went down, I could really tell a difference. So you're likely right about the effectiveness of the drug.
