Do your best, then to hell with it.
Thank you all for your hugs and prayers, they are very much appreciated. My husband is still in a comma, but we are seeing signs of improvement. It is now day 10, and the Doctors tell me it is a marathon not a sprint. I find I am having problems with my suppressed adrenal glands. 20 mg of pred doesn't seem to be cutting the mustard when I am under stress and upset this many days in a row. I am up and down like a yoyo with good news and bad news daily. If anyone has experience with this I would like your input.
I am going by memory, but don't you have problems with your adrenial glands from steroid use for many years?
