hey i think this might be working!  well as you may remember my last fever episode 1 month ago with the blood cultures etc... and then the rip to the drs in seattle. well any how, they wanted me to take some prednisone the next time i had one. well this past saturday exactly 4 weeks since the last one, guess what? yep. so i popped my first 40mgs as soon as i felt the chills coming on. still got to a little over 102, but not 104! and it seemed to not be as debilitating. it definately did not last as long as the last few times. i will finish up the prednisone tomorrow night. just 4 days for a quick boost. so here hoping for the future. and that this wasn't a fluke.   yeah

hey, rando, i got it!!! ya know those portable air conditioners that the astronauts used to carry around all the time when they were suited up? i bet a bunch of those suits and a/c suitcases are out there on some kind of govt surplus auction somewhere. wouldn't that be cool? (so to speak) pred is scary, and i'm sure i don't have to tell you that. horror stories abound.

Glad the pred worked! I too hope it is not a fluke. I just had the flu and got a 103 temp and I was so out of it. I cannot imaging having that often!

Randy and Sniper you 2 are so funny! Cheers me up to read your posts.

Well, I'm sorry it takes pred to handle these darn fevers, Randy, but sure am glad it looks like a short burst of pred will do the trick. Prayers are continuing for you.
