ok! so before i saw my gi i went off to do my weekly blood work. i told him how lousy i felt the past 4 days so he went to check on my blood work. come to find out my white blood cell count is UP! so he thinks i have a touch of something rather than the 6mp making me sick. my blood pressure was 80 over 46. !!!! what the heck, last time i was there it was 105 over 70! that is a huge jump but the nurse said it could be because she checked my right arm rather than my left? my left still had gauze and tape on it that's why she did the right :) he also wanted to put me back up to 20mgs of prednisone and i said no, i would like to see how i am without it but if i have major problems i will let him know and go back on it. tomorrow i go down to 5mgs for 2 weeks and i am DONE! done and done! oooo i hate that stuff! he also mentioned he would like to see me put on a few pounds. i laughed! i was 120 this spring, i am 108 now and fairly happy with that. mind you i am all of 4' 11 and a half :) let's see, what else, oh yeah, i told him one vicodin doesn't cut it anymore, i usually have to take 1 and 1/2. he told me not to worry much about it. decisions will be made in a few months in regards to my surgery. so for now, take pain meds as i need to. i haven't had to take any since tuesday so that's good!
well that's it. all kinds of stuff. i will be back to see him january 8th! hope you all are well :D
