Still home, waiting for a big storm to pass. Sure don't want to drive on that Schuylkill Expressway in bad weather. The swelling in my foot went down without the water pill. The proctitis bothered me all night. I only had a waffle for supper. I'm going to have to monitor my diet more closely. The rectal meds, especially Canasa suppository, as I have trouble retaining the Cort enemas, seem to give more relief than the oral meds. No bleeding, just some pain and pressure in the rectum. To add insult to injury, I took two Benicars by mistake this morning.....ugh, senior moments!
