I've been doing very well (after the flare) with taking one 10mg tab every 12 hours. And its been working really well. So when I started the low fevers two weeks ago, after nearly a week of keeping up with it, I decided to see what happened if I backed it down from every 12 hours to every 10 hours. Whaddayaknow? The fever stopped. Just as I suspected. My monster is craving more prednisone. My monster is a prednisone junkie now. Its like this "Little Shop Of Horrors" inside my body.
And I can't even begin to tell you how much *better* I feel. My eyes are almost swollen shut, and my cheeks are so puffed out my lips are almost gone, but I feel better. God......I hate prednisone. But thank You for it. What a Catch-22 situation. Wonder how long this will last. Wonder how long it will be before this is not enough either. Well, I can't think about that now. Things to do things to do.
So many projects, so little time. SO much yarn, how will I ever use it all before I croak? Hundreds of patterns and pattern books, many out of print. One I have is out of print, and I saw it on Amazon for over $1,000! A THOUSAND DOLLARS!! What a rip-off. I tried having a give-away one time, but got no response, so I guess I'll just leave the Mr. to deal with them all when I'm gone. Sorry, Doris Chan, I really thought they'd beat down my door for yours, but I was wrong on that (especially since one is on amazon for a thousand dollars, and mine was free). I have pristine copies of Every Day Crochet and Amazing Lace Crochet, both I believe are out of print. Nobody wanted them. I think I'll maybe get in touch with someone at the local womens shelter and see if they'd be interested. I have several years worth of subscriptions to "Crochet!", "Crochet Today", and many others. A dresser full. Meh....anyway.
So the fever is under control, and I'm feeling better. The lungs are trashed and getting worse, but I already knew that would happen. Slow but steady. have a great day.
