This and That

I wanted to mention another friend, Jane, who has been helpful with rides to shows I am covering, even though she lives on the opposite end of town.  She contributes to my column and helps me track down set lists which make writing my reviews much easier.  We have seen Dr. John, Tingstad and Rumbel, and Meshell Ndeogeocello together.  Her husband Rhodes also provided a quote I could use at Tingstad and Rumbel.
Carol and I went to my wonderful HD doctor, Dr. Bird.  I asked him if I could switch to another medication, since the tetrabenazine I take isn’t being all that helpful at the dose I am able to take , because of side effects.  Dr. Bird says there are some other medications I can try.  We are starting with Haldol.  It will take a few weeks to get it up the level where we would expect improvement.
I have heard a joke about Haldol:  “My patients on Haldol thank me twice, when I put them on it, and when I take them off it.”  I hope I don’t have to ask to be taken off it.
The preset moment is warm inside and frosty outside.

  1. Hope the new meds help, Marian. My sister says it's been snowing in Tacoma--she sent me wonderful pics. I hear more is expected. Enjoy!
