I'd been putting off calling for my latest test results, because I was convinced they were going to be bad. This is a very mature attitude, I know. I decided today that I'd better just call; I mean, I have plenty of candy pumpkins to turn to in the case of bad news. It turns out that my M-spike has gone back DOWN to 1.6! Woo hoo hoo hoo! I'm nice and stable -- at least for this month.
I think I'll have a candy pumpkin anyway.
