I'm still needing to take anti-nausea's. I went out yesterday and did the cemetary visiting and then went by this house my uncle/aunt were cleaning for new tenants. Felt a bit worse and worse. Then stopped by mom's...chillin' on the porch at least two feet away from her. Still, I ran myself too hard. Fell asleep in the bathtub and boy was my husband mad. I couldn't explain it. With all the stuff I'm taking, I'm just tired a lot of the time. Plus, it was really hot and humid yesterday so when I got the sweaty clothes off and hopped into a nice warm bath, my knees began thanking me right away and then that hurting spot in my center stopped for long enough for me to fall asleep. I know...I KNOW. Bad idea to do that. No, no pain meds at the time of sleeping. I was just worn out by the day. I wake up for a few hours and then pass out for a few hours. I've never been a "feel the prednisone" kinda gal. Usually just tired and take my afternoon nap since I got out of the hospital this time.
 
I'm getting tons of bruises on my legs. Don't know what I'm knocking into but they're there. Maybe when I sleep, I'm pinching myself? turn
 
Mom finds out for sure if she's a MRSA lady today. Cultures just take that long. I'm hoping she'll be okay either way.
 
Hubby said I looked really bad yesterday so its a good thing I managed to keep the food down with the help of the phenergan. I was sucking on popsicles to help hydrate but also to cool the burning sensation in my tummy. And 'cause today wasn't going to be hard enough, being female sucks. Enough said.
 
Honestly though, I'm trying to stay positive even though I'm starting to feel sort of like I could go bad again. Not gonna think it though I can definitely feel it. Still and all, it could just be the cramps doing a bit of their thing too. Who knows 'cause I sure don't. Still, glad I have this place to come to when I feel bad or even so so and can see all these happy names to cheer me up.

I would give your doctor a call today about those bruises. One of your medications may be interfering with production of red blood cells, white blood cells, or platelets. If so, that needs prompt attention.

Prednisone is hard on potassium levels and calcium levels. That's part of why I'm required to eat something high in potassium at every meal.

I think it is the steroids giving you the easy bruising. Same thing happens to me. Hope you get feeling better soon. Hugs!

If hubbies worried you'll drown if falling to sleep in the tub somehow, I think you'd awaken VERY quickly if your face touched water. Nap where you can. lol. Now if your loaded to the eyeballs on narcotics then maybe....
