    Default Fair Warning....I AM on Steroids....again

    It started the Friday before Christmas, you know, just in time for ALL the doctors offices to be closed for the holidays. I did what I could do with what I had at home. Mucinex, additional neb treatments...all to no avail. My doc didn't open his office back up until yesterday, and I got in as soon as I could. I was in pretty bad shape by then, after already being ill for 5 days. I absolutely refused to got to the ER or Urgent Care and be around more sick people, and have to wait for hours to be seen. Type A influenza is going around really bad in my area. Anyway, I was very close to being hospitilized, because I wasn't moving much air...and the infection had set in pretty good. Anyway, they added another neb med, high strength super antibiotics, and.....PREDISONE!!! They didn't really have a choice. Please pray for my DH, and grands as I go through yet another round of steroids.

    Oh my gosh, that sounds terrible. And so NOT fun! I agree, going to clinics and ER's is crazy during the holidays. My daughter is an ER nurse and said it was so busy. She works the Christmas holiday every year and said it is always crazy busy during this time.

    But, you need to take care of yourself. Lots of fluids of course, and cuddle under quilts. Will add some prayers for a speedy recovery.

    I don't like going on steroids! I really hate that you're having to take them. Hopefully it will knock it out quickly! Praying for a quick recovery and a different end of the house for everyone else to stay in!

    Ack! We know how those things affect you! We will add prayers for your husband and the family while you are on this course of meds. We will also try not to prod you into an argument in the next few weeks.

    I know how they mess with me and my moods. I can only imagine the dose they have you on to dry that mess up. I also remember how they did you before you realized their effect. Thank you for the fair warning!
    We love you, steroids and all!
