As my dog says...squirrels are NOT just for breakfast anymore! I'll send him over to help with the coons, but they can be feisty little critters! Wow, no pneumonia! That's great news! But how is it they saw fluid and now all of a sudden there is none and they are blaming the big decrease on smoking? I'm so confused. Not just for you but myself as well! What did they say was the cause of the vomiting, D & pain?
Well I increased the pred to 15mg 3 days ago and my D is worse. 5 times today. I know that seems small potatoes to some here but this is an all of a sudden flare out of nowhere! I guess I'll try 20mg for the next three days with a liquid/mush diet and see what happens. If no improvement, I'll call and whine to the GI, like that's going to do any good, cause it's impossible to see her under a month's time because she's one of the best in our area. Not to mention the pred's side effect according to NIH can cause me not to have periods. Not that I miss them and the more complicated week of CD. It's just, is it the pred or have I reached menopause? End result is the same for my bones.
As for halloween....I'm thinking of flying into that tree, feel like I'm already hanging out there anyway!
Hope you got some rest today and try and keep some fluid down. As to the smoking..I can't preach...going to the store now to pick up a pack of the stupid things myself.
