I was wondering how your prednisone taper is going?  I am also tapering right now.  Down to 10mg, but monitoring things closely.
UC since April 2006; first flare May 2007, hospitalized 28 days.
Remicade infusion brought symptoms under control, but caught MRSA infection from PICC line.
2nd Remicade at 14 weeks, severe reaction, no more Remicade.
tapering prednisone (20mg/day down from 60), started taper 4/10/08 (2.5mg every two weeks)
Humira - 1 shot every two weeks (since December 2007)
Calcium - 2x per day
