Dr. K also cut down my steroid use. It had started at 20 mg and I was down to 12mg. He cut me to 8mg. I was hopeful for some rest on Thursday. My ride was the ever so handsome Victor Raisys and he met me with TOAK (Tea of a kind) for the ride home. Yummy and I felt like I had a boyfriend picking me up! Now the sleep I longed for came, but only about an hour earlier (2:30 am) and I was nauseous as well. Friday found me with energy left so off to the pool with Melissa even tho I am not in prime time shape like she is quickly moving into! We swam together for about an hour. I got out first and she went to talk to someone as Melissa is always running for Mayor! Watch out Bruce!! I trot off to the shower and of course after 5 seconds I am done. There are some teenage girls hanging in the women's room, of course, so I can't get to my locker to get my cap. I am putting on lotion with my towel wrapped around me when I spy Miss Popular going to the showers. She does a double take at me when she gets to the showers and nearly falls down laughing. She didn't think I was a man, but all she could think about was Uncle Fester, the UPS guy and my bald head that has chicken fuzz on it! I am so glad I could be of entertainment value this day!! I do have to admit it is such an attractive look for me!
I was not able to get to sleep or nap on Friday, but I did lay low and got to bed by midnight, so I do think the reduced amount of steroids was worth the small price of nausea to put up with and hope we continue. I am getting ready to swim this morning so at least all of this Saturday won't be spent in bed!
There are times I think this process has taken forever and times that I think it is just flying by so fast. I am lucky to have friends like you support me as well as my family on both sides propping me up . My kids have been superstars, but the real hero is Mattie, who never complains about doing the work I can't get to as well as keeping up his everyday life. How lucky can a girl get especially when her two "girls" are acting so poorly!
It is off to the pool and whatever else I can get done on this hot day! Enjoy summer and stay hydrated!
