Chassity, why are you on prednisone? I'm in the process of tapering mine for the surgery and I am feeling the insomnia...note the time. : ) I haven't had much luck with tapering so these side effects are new.
Anyway, were you on prednisone b/c of the UC prior to the surgery? I'm going to attempt getting down to 5mg just before the surgery...however, I've been on 15mg for the past few days and not feeling the greatest. I'm nervous about
the 10mg week! : )
I'm glad you're feeling better and are home. Hospital stays are not fun at all. I'm also glad you're home with your daughter. I think that's really the only thing that makes me sad about
my entire situation, as that I won't be with Jackson while in the hospital, and it's going to be a little different the first few weeks home. However, I realize we both will adapt and adjust to the changes without much complication. It's just knowing that there is going to be that change is what upsets me. We're contemplating making his crib into a toddler bed sooner than later and adding a twin mattress next to it on the floor...partially so he can roll onto it while sleeping, and also so that I can lay with him and have access to him. But none of that will happen until I can work the baby gates. : )

Life has never been so sweet! I appreciate the small things in life...the little joys that occur every second of every day. Though we struggle and have crazy complications, nothing can over ride our love and happiness.
Surgery is scheduled for February 6th!!! : ) Yea!!!!!!!!!!
