Health Update/and Thank yous

Well it's been awhile since I wrote about my health. Not much new, except my liver tests improved with my last blood test so the extra prednisone worked. My doc is keeping my dosage high until I get to a lower number, then he'll start weening me off the prednisone again back down to my lower dosage. I'm looking forward to that because I really hate the tremors I get at this dosage, and the false feeling of energy.

This past weekend I was feeling like I had all this energy, and I moved my scrapbook room around, boy what a mistake, I crashed so hard that by Tuesday I could barely get out of bed. I'm still tired. I should have known better because just getting ready in the morning makes me tired.

So I'll go for another blood test in about 2 weeks, and we'll see where I'm at. In the mean time I need to remember my limits.

Oh and a big THANK YOU to our friend Patty, who gave Brett and I new furniture, it's so comfy. Well it's not brand new but it might as well be it feels like it's never been broken in. So we've got this big old blue couch if anyone wants it for like a garage band room or something.

Also another THANK YOU to my friend Inge, she's such a love. She's going to help me with a work out routine that I can handle, so when I wave only my hand moves not my arms. She's a personal trainer, and a triathalete. If you ever want a personal trainer let me know and I'll refer you to Inge.

THANK YOU to all my friends, and Internet buddies who've been praying for me and our family. We feel very lifted up.

That's about it for now. It's time for me to start heading to get ready for work. My boss let me change my hours at work, so I go in Tues to Friday at 11am, gives me some quiet down time in the morning, and has helped me out greatly. THANKS Roger.

Well talk with you later,
Carol

glad to hear the meds are helping. That prednisone can be nasty stuff

Thank you for stopping by. I'm really looking forward to doing the study over at Lelia's blog.

I think it will be a great way to encourage each other.

I hope you drop by again,
Tammy
