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.
