Yellow Fellow

I had my meeting with the endocrinologist today, and I’m proud to say that I’m now Yellow.  This isn’t to say that I’m suffering from jaundice or cowardice.  It means that I’m one step closer to being released by the doctor!

Patients who join the program are assessed for various medical reasons, and are placed on a colored track.  I started out on the red track, visiting the doctor for labs and check-ups once every other week.  After a while, I was moved down to orange, seeing the doctor only once every month or so.  As of today, I’m on the yellow track, seeing the doctor once every three months.  Yay!  The frequency of doctor visits for folks on the yellow track varies based on individual need, but I’m completely excited to know that I’m doing well enough on the program that I won’t have to be back to see the endocrinologist until July.

PS:  I didn’t tell him about the icing incident.  Let’s keep that our little secret.
