I said almost 4 years ago that this one would never go on a high dose of prednison again.
Horrible memories of that time and here I am again finishing 2nd week with 4 more to look forward too
and then months of very low dose to come off of this medication with no side affects.
So prednison is a miracle drug, inexpensive, usually successful but you endure much.
Was told "this is really going to be difficult for you and please be careful and do not fall being
so medicated" would have been difficult just with the oral steroid but several weeks ago cortisone shots in shoulders, so it doubly difficult.
Every side affect you can experience has been going on.
Some sleep for a few hours is better then no sleep. Difficult to focus at time and guess
just a medicated feeling with so many ups and downs physically and emotionally
Cortisone totally dries body up and continually taking care of this plus drinking tons of
coconut water, probotics so I do not become dehydrated, Daily Ensure and trying to eat healthy.
Thursday a crown came off of a tooth, has to be redone and today another tooth broke off
all of this to one who never had a cavity until age 60. Soup and super soft food guess will
be my diet until dental appointment week after Thanksgiving.
Steroids lower your immune system and hopefully all successful with dental visit.
Much more has happened over last 2 weeks but will stop with this sharing.
Did not want to share what is going on at this time
but so many special ones writing and sharing over the years and did not want to just disappear
Have not been answering phone most of day and on computer once a day to keep in touch
with my children, Just keep moving, resting, discomfort level comes and goes daily, do not like
the extreme ups and downs
but so thankful for so many who think of me with encouraging words, write, call and make offers of help
Thank you, Lana, Lisa and son, Lorene, Dan Green, Polly, Anne and Cindy....
It is best for me to just stay busy and focus on thankfulness as it could be a lot worse.
So continuing on and know with Thanksgiving soon arriving with family there would not
be time to share. Will cook turkey, dressing, green beans from the garden and pies and my girls will bring the rest and can set the table.
Friend with nursery near her property brought yearly Christmas flowers, they give her and requested not as many this year.
They are on the loft with house plants brought inside and look so cheerful. After Thanksgiving
will bring downstairs and girls will pick up their plant on Thanksgiving day.
and brought some Sage and Parsley inside, Nothing equals fresh Sage for dressing
