Happy Wednesday everyone! So, the last few days have been uneventful. Although I DID start to get my appetite back in the last few days – yay for a lower dose of prednisone! Speaking of prednisone, tomorrow I continue the taper and will be at 30 mg once a day for one week. Only a few more weeks and I am done (I actually finish the day after my birthday. Boo.) with the prednisone (Forever, I hope. Although sometimes I get it when I am sick).
Looked at some more dogs to adopt – we’re looking for something that is house-trained, 6 months to 18 months old (though I would prefer something closer to the younger end), and from a rescue or shelter (Puppy mills are just disgusting – also, sounds too much like pepper mill). Tomorrow, I get to see my therapist for the first time since April or May – i’ve been doing phone sessions every week since then. Yay! Some semblance of routine. I’m going to cash in all of the scratch-offs I won and never redeemed – before the diagnosis, but after the abnormal blood work, I kept winning scratch off tickets that I was buying – that’s how I knew something was up. I never win scratch-offs – I always win in the casino. So, that is how the past two days have gone for me, hope it has gone well for all of you out there, and tomorrow I take the methotrexate, so I should be tired Friday through Sunday. Hopefully I keep my appetite, and it turns out the prednisone was causing the appetite issues!
