I'm up too early - sleep patterns are way messed up. I'm off to the doctor today to discuss one of the factors in my sleep - the prednisone. We are to begin tapering it down dose wise & discontinuing this medication all together. I'm so very happy - while this medication can be a life saver, it's heck on the system long term. We've gone from a/c weather on Sunday & Monday to the need for the furnace to be running this very early morning. kt & her PCA are off to the humane society after school to walk the dogs & help clean the kennels. (kt hates that last part ) Enjoy your day - hope it's calm. Remember to breath deeply & give your loved ones a hug as they leave for the day.
