Oh Happy Day

I woke up this morning and, despite sleeping for crap, I felt fine. I didn't want to crawl into a hole and hibernate. I was excited to start the day and felt like there was energy in my body for once.

In fact, I got up, got the toddler, snuggled with her for a minute and then did an elliptical workout while she watched PBS for the first time in over a month. Then I took the toddler out for a ride on her tricycle, we played in the water and we planted some seeds. That's a lot of activity for me. Just last week the elliptical would've been IT.

Yesterday I walked a rough mile. Rough because I had some asthma issues; air wasn't coming back out and I had to resist the urge to punch myself in the gut to force it out. But I still did it.

And it didn't ruin today for me.

And I haven't had any prednisone in 48 hours.

So maybe this is behind me. I hope, I hope, I freaking HOPE.

Next up, weaning off the Pulmicort (assuming the asthma is stable) and figuring out what to do about my stupid uterus.

  1. Glad to see you're doing better. I've been following your blog for a little while and reading about your issues with steroid withdrawal and the rest of it.
    Good luck with the Pulmicort tapering!
