Many times when someone is undergoing the IV Solumedrol treatment, they get a burst of energy as they haven’t had before.

I do get a burst of energy, but it lasts for 45 minutes. Then I’m like…

I am acutely aware that I don’t share many physical attributes with this lady, but we are totally on the same page! I attempted to watch some old Mysteries on Netflix, but I fell asleep both times. Kind of pointless. I’ve had about a combined 5 hours of sleep in 2 nights. I don’t blame me.

2 more days to go. I’m very grateful as the last time I was here, My medical team was enjoying a civil war.

Jesus and my awesome doctor took care of it.

It’s not always easy, but the hope and anticipation of feeling better bridges many feelings.

Steroids!

prednisoneI am supposed to start steroid treatment within the next few days. Someone was to contact me by now, but no word yet. I won’t be taking Prednisone this time, but IVSM. Believe me, it can have similar effects as above, but there are a few things that make the process easier.

Lots of Potassium from food and supplements

Hard Candy

Low sodium diet

An excellent IV nurse who can put the line in soundly

I’m unsure of how my posting will go this week, but I hope I’ll be up and running again soon.
