Moji as sphinx

Rumi loves his brother, but won't share his private sauna.

Note Fennec's white leggie being used as a scarf by Gadjo.
Health update: Well, the current working theory, according to the endocrinologist I saw, is that I have Cushing's (metabolic) Syndrome (but not Cushing's Disease), caused by insulin resistance.

I started taking the drug metformin yesterday, at one-fourth the eventual dosage. It tends to cause a lot of digestive issues, but supposedly fewer if you start very slowly. I think the jury will be out for a while.

By the way, I have decided not to take statins.
Moji health update: He now has a total of three tumors along his ribcage. The first one that appeared was tested and is just a benign fatty tumor. I suspect the other two are as well, but just to be sure I'm going to have them tested this coming week.

Well, syndrome sounds better than disease. Hope the metformin regime is going okay and the side effects are minimal.

I agree with Mary, Hang in there!
