Send Me On My Way - Rusted Root

Happy Friday! Free bagel day at Einstein's :)

The rheumatologist wants me on the prednisone for another week, then we'll be able to fully evaluate its effectiveness. She's thinking of putting me on a muscle relaxer in a couple weeks too, to relieve pain and help me sleep.

The biggest problem I have with the prednisone is that it makes me so hungry! All the time! I'm eating a full meal literally every 3 hours. I feel like a hobbit. Breakfast, second breakfast, mid-morning snack, brunch, lunch, afternoon snack, tea, supper, dinner, dessert... :P haha.

Didn't sleep well last night. Kept waking up thinking I had one day to plan an entire Snowball weekend...which I did successfully by the end of the dream! :) Anyway, today doubly fatigued, especially my eyes, heart, and arms.

Praying for a friend KF in the hospital this weekend, having surgery Monday.

nap time,


  1. Emma, I just got your blog address and began to read your thoughts. First of all, please know that we have been following your progress since November through your mom, and you have been in our prayers ever since. I think it is wonderful that you are blogging. It is a wonderful way to work through things, and at the same time keep your friends and family updated without having to repeat yourself each time one of us calls. I will be seeing your mom tonight and I will talk with her about some of my ideas for you. Keep the faith! - Linda

  2. Another week of prednisone? Gah! And you're already double-fatigued?

    I'm glad we watched Lord of the Rings together, so you were able to make that hobbit reference.

    I'm praying for KF too.

  3. He appreciates both of your prayers.
