Yep, I have pleurisy again (Waah!) so today the doc put me on another prednisone burst starting with 40mg. I'm taking vicodin for the pain. What really worries me is I'm scheduled to have sinus surgery April 19 so I really need to get this lung inflamation under control pronto. The ENT will be doing 3 procedures and he's already planned extra pred the day of surgery. I could sure use some prayers and positive energy! Love, Butterflake

Hi Staacie, Amy, Lynnwood, Redrose, Babs and Patty. Prednisone has me working the late shift so let me've had be the first to say Happy hop, hop, Easter. Stacie I'm sorry you're havin a rough time too. My pred is already working so it no longer hurts to breaath, but any movement hurts like a female dog. Babs I think I remember you've had pleurisy a few times.

I hope all of you a pain free day. Well, while I'm wishing and praying I hope you have lots of energy this fine spring day! Love ya, Donna
