Just got my blood results from my rheumy.
My rheumy who did NOT want me on prednisone at all...
My sugar is up.
Just like she predicted. Just like I really did not want to have happen.
Borderline at 110. My white blood cell count was also "minimally" elevated. She wrote in the margin "due to steroids".
It wasn't a fasting test...maybe it was from the donut I had on the way into NYC??? No, probably not. UGH.
She wrote under the recommendations - "Begin to follow a no concentrated sugar diet."
Lovely. So, good thing I ate mashed potatoes last night and had a donut then too, huh? Great.
I have been feeling great! Since my weird knee problem 4 weeks ago and my trigger finger thing around the same time, things have been really good!
I played in a kickball game! I walked my a*@ off in Cooperstown! These are things I would not have accomplished without the prednisone! I mean, it still is not perfect, but even Glenn "forgot" about checking with me to be sure I was "okay". He felt bad because he thought he pushed me too hard!
Tonite is ravioli. I will be having 2, not that I want to only have 2, but, I do not want to stop the prednisone. Instead, I will fill up on the side dish of italian sausage. I guess it could be worse.
I know it could be worse.... but I just started the DAMN 5 mgs of prednisone! It has only been 5 weeks and the test was done at week 4!!! I mean - can't Icatch a friggin' break! I am just feeling really good now...and now this!
My biggest fear is the sugar will get worse even if I am good and she will take me off of it. I feel so much better! I am doing so much more...the kids have been so amazed! They say I almost like "normal" again!!! Why God? Why?
Please...pray for me, send positive thoughts, light candles, whatever it is you spiritually feel wont to do. I could use the help! ;-D
Thanks in advance, dear journalers and journal readers.
