Tackling Tuesday

Tuesday, January 22, 2013

Yesterday was a day off, so is tomorrow, from work anyway. Since going on the antibiotic, I spent the previous 4 days resting, resting, drinking fluids, and resting. This morning I worked 6 hours through 4 this afternoon. I felt well enough to tackle the grocery store to pick up a couple of things. Then when I got home, my dh helped me make supper, when I found out we needed onions and had to change my meal plan for the night. I will get that tomorrow, along with the other couple of things I couldn't get.

I have taken wheat out of my diet for 8 days so far. Though I don't know if it is that, or the antibiotic, my face is finally clearing up. I am feeling better, though I am not totally over the respiratory infection. I am much better.

Besides that, not much is new. I had to go on prednisone, which I hate, and when I do it makes my weight blow up. I have been drinking lots of water to eliminate all the excess medications and flush my system. My leg swelling is down.

The weather is cold, freezing cold. There was some snow this morning, but it was drivable.

Now, it is time to unwind for the night. Blessings, my friends. Perhaps I can get back to some regular exercise soon. I did manage to walk some today, maybe about a mile.

    emoticon Hello Deborah!
    I hate you have been sick these past days. And that prednisone is terrible! I pray you get it flushed out of your system. A lot of our problems are derived from fungus. I believe that fungus causes most any disease. Anyway...I pray you are HEALED! emoticon Stay filled with liquids to keep all that medicine out of your system any longer that it has to be. Enjoy your day and BE BLESSED! We woke up to see another day and truly we ARE Blessed! emoticon
    Love & Blessings!

    I'm glad you're starting to feel better. Hopefully soon you'll be all better. :) I hate the prednisone too. My mom's doctor told her a long time ago it's pretty much a fat magnet. :( But there are times we know it's a necessary evil. Hugs!

    So glad some things are starting to clear up and get back to normal for you! Shame about having to take prednisone, but drinking lots of water and being extra careful with the diet should help fight its effects..
    Hope you have a Wonderful Wednesday!

    Glad you were able to get that rest which is so essential to get well.
    I definitely agree with you on the prednisone. That does wicked things to me.

    Have a good week.
