This is just going to be a medical update. Mom is planning to write a bunch on Dawn’s Musings once the suitcases are unpacked and life returns to normal (?!).
Qavah was feeling pretty strong today and so was I, thus everyone attended Church this morning. It was a blessing to worship with our church family and have them welcome Qavah. This afternoon, Qavah and I took a nap. Then, we had small group this evening. We were able to rejoice and praise the Lord for the many ways He answered prayers this past week. I have a special health-related prayer request tonight. Tomorrow morning, I begin the Prednisone taper again. This time, I will be going down from 20mg to 17.5mg every other day for two weeks. If this latest attempt is not successful, I am willing to wait to begin the taper until the Imuran has been in my body a full twelve weeks (tomorrow begins week four). However, I am praying the taper will work and my adrenal system will begin to function on its own. Recently, I heard someone remark that Prednisone is a “miracle drug, but also a brutal drug.” How true that is! Prednisone has done its job and now I am praying I no longer need it.Comments:
