Well - I dropped another mg last Friday.  Down to 7 mg - so far, so good.
 
Went in for bloodwork today to see where all my levels are.  Hopefully I'll know something Wed or Thurs.

Kim,
  It's good to hear the slow taper is going well for you. I hope you get good news from your labwork as well. Keep us updated and take care. You are in my thoughts and prayers.
