Early morning call from FIL
Wednesday, August 28, 2013
But it was a good call. He was happy to report that he actually slept a full 7 hours and was happy. It seems his digestive system is starting to work again as well. He sounded more upbeat. Now if he could just sit up a little so he could do his computer or read. Hopefully the doctor will approve him sitting up a bit soon. We are hoping to meet with the doctor today if he visits. I hugged and kissed my FIL yesterday and told him how proud I was of him for keeping a positive attitude through all of this. He seemed to really appreciate it. I also got an on line card from one of his daughters thanking me for all I am doing to help with her Dad. That was so nice.
So today will walk the dogs and then we will go visit with FIL(Dad) and see if there is anything else we might do to make him comfortable.
My DH and I started to watch the second season of Homeland and are really enjoying it. Good series. Hopefully we will get time tonight to watch more of it.
Hope all of you are doing well and making good decisions. I am so happy that even during this stressful time I am holding my own and feeling good. I am doing well with the tapering off of the prednisone and am down now to 7.5 mg per morning and tomorrow will cut back to 5 mg per day for two weeks and then down to 2.5mg per day for two weeks. So soon I should be off it all together. I have also stopped taking some of the meds that were for my digestion and seem to be doing well. I was told I could always go back on them if need be....hoping that with all the enzymes and such my digestion will continue to do well. Holding my own at 106.5 pounds.
Have a terrific day. Treat yourself well with healthy food choices.
