I have a call in to my NP once again about the prednisone dose and 6MP. When I uppsed the prednisone just 5 mg. on my own things are looking much better.
Hope I can see REMISSION too someday - even almost would be great. I feel I am about 80%. As for D - I have IBS for years so what I eat can cause D a day or two a week - just if it does NOT have blood or too much mucous I am happy. Doesn't take a lot to make us happy sometimes, huh?
