Hi Anne,
there is a more advanced model (they were talking about it last visit) but whether I'd have one I don't know.
I am amazed by medical advancements.
Have a great day and thanks for your support emoticon

I've done more reading on the arteritis; seems each time I search I find something new.

I'm pretty sure my strength and energy, as well as my appetite coming back are related to reducing the prednisone. I've noticed the biggest and smoothest changes since the last reduction. We do not yet know how low I will be able to go. Like most things, slow seems to be best as my body adjusts. I really appreciate your comments and support Anne. Thank you!

Thanks Anne, being here does help me with reflection. If nothing changes, nothing changes. My new mantra is QUITTING IS NOT AN OPTION! emoticon

yes had the mammo Anne, and I was surprised not to see a picket at the hospital. emoticon

I support them too but it's being taken too far now. When patients start to suffer they're not upholding their pledge.........first do no harm.
Hunt needs to compromise too!!!
