So I went back on prenidsone last Sat. 10 mg. after talking with my husband. I was at getting some blood work done for my family doctor, who is located on the same floor as my Rheumy and decided to ask to speak to his office lady, Jennifer. She out to speak to me and I told her what had happened and what I was currently doing. She went and got my doctor, who just happened to be there b/4 he was leaving for a 2 week vacation. He came out and sent 1 mg. script over to the pharmacy and told me to go down 1/2 mg. a day. I have an appointment with him on March 4th already scheduled and that should work out pretty good for just getting off or pretty close to being off the steroids. I sure hope the pain doesn't come back. Wish me luck all.
I was feeling so good last Sunday that my son and I did a 3+ mile river walk in the afternoon. Sunday was weird weather wise. It was overcast and cool in the morning and then around 1pm the clouds cleared, the sun came out and it was just over 72. Perfect weather to walk but by the time we were done the clouds were starting to come back. I think we had about 2 hours of sun. lol Every morning it has been cool, 2 days ago was so foggy at 8am I couldn't see my neighbors house across the street, 2 hours later it was gone and it was closet to 80 degrees. Been that way most of the week.
Went to the gym today because it was just too warm. Had a good workout on the treadmill. Did some jogging, 4 min fast walk, 1 min jog. I am starting over on jogging so I can start doing some 5Ks again. Unfortunately my asthma kicked in somewhat after I did the 40 mins. I went over and tried out a new area that is a 12 min. Abs. with machines I had not seen b/4 at Planet Fitness. Was fun and met a couple of nice lady's working out too.
My daughter Samra and her boyfriend Carl are coming this weekend for a visit. Jeff will be home Sunday morning. Can't wait to see him. I know his dog Phred has sure missed him, too! Plan on having my friend Rosa and her family over for Sunday dinner with all of us, if they can make it. I have this large ham in the freezer and will figure it out from there.
Hope you all have a great Friday!
