    Thanks a lot Pete. My Toe and me are feeling better each day. No more chills. I think you are right and it was a symptom of shock. If something similar will happen again I will take more pred.

    Nice seeing you around. I missed you. I keep you always in my thoughts and prayers.

    Any kidneys' news ?

    Just finished a 'pred blast' for severe case of bursitis (I crashed into a golf cart this summer with my BODY! - how dumb was that...this old bod doesn't take hits like that anymore!) at 60mg for 5 days, then a taper. Worked quite well...yes, I was a pain to live with for a week or so, but I feel better now. Looking for other alternatives is hardly efficient nor validated for the most part, nor are they for everyone. Keep looking everyone...this is what we've got! Handle it. Best to all!

The hospital that has been arranging this transplant has done a very poor job in my opinion. Every few months I think about requesting to change hospital, but as I keep being led to believe I'm very close to the operation, I decide not to "rock the boat".

    Thanks for the update Pete. I admire your patience and endurance. Praying you will soon get your new kidney.

    Thanks for the update, Don. Sorry about your accident and glad that you are getting better. Be careful and take good care of yourself, old bod or not, I guess we weggies got our bodies "second hand" from the beginning

    Then, pred blast is the way to go with injuries. At least we are blessed to have it, compared to poor non weggies who don't know the joy of pred consuming

    Hey Dirty Don, Golf cart crashes are no fun. But at least you are on the uptick. I was doing a slow taper from prednisone. From 10, I went down 1/4 every two weeks. It took me two months to get to 9. Feeling great, but then I had to go and push a faster taper. Talk about DUMB. I woke up with the start of a sore throat, didn’t even have to cough to get all that phlegm up. So up went the prednisone, on went the humidifiers, Mucinex for chest. All I needed was another case of pneumonia. I caught it in time. Thanks to all of you out there who keep repeating to move fast. I am just left with some leg pain. The hardest part was my husband was having a procedure in downtown Charlotte. I wanted to be with him, and I did manage to drive. Since I was going to be in a medical building I thought it would be prudent to wear my mask and gloves. All I needed was a white coat! When we left I still had the mask on and stopped at a store. Three people thanked me for wearing it. I didn’t want to tell them I was wearing it to protect myself from them.
    Snow coming to Charlotte this weekend. BRRRR

    Hi Alyssa,
    I know when I break a bone (I u fortunately have broken several in my life) I get nauseous & have the chills. Itís my bodyís reaction I guess. Doesnít matter if I have broken a thumb or an arm-my body reacts the same & I know immediately itís broken. As for the tetanus vaccine-since my diagnosis I have had several without any reaction.
