Hey, all! Just a quick update for those who have called and emailed, which I truly appreciate. I had a follow up with my NP yesterday. None of my symptoms were any better, which is not uncommon. It’s only been a week since I was diagnosed, but because of my vision problems I was given a second round of steroids at a much higher dose. So, this could be me in the near future.
YEAH, RIGHT! And Monkeys will fly out of my butt right after hell freezes over and I give up chocolate.
If my vision isn’t improving with this new dose of steroids I’ll be seeing an ophthalmologist on Friday. The other symptoms I can deal with, but the vision part of it really just SUCKS! It’s the one aspect I hope to get under control quickly. As of right now I’m not able to schedule any shoots and driving isn’t exactly safe. (Not to worry – I’m staying off the road for now!)
Again, thank you to everyone who has expressed their concern and offered to help. Luckily, I have an amazing husband who always takes great care of me. And of course, two little monkeys, er, uh – angels, who like to help him out. :o)
Stay tuned. Hopefully I’ll have good news in the near future. In the meantime, please be patient with me as I try to stay on top of emails and phone calls. If you need to reach me right away, phone will likely be a better option as my time on the computer is very limited.
LOL — well, I CAN tell you that you can get small buff real fast 😉 I was on Prednisone YEARS ago, but all I have to do still is work out a little, and I have muscles forming right away. Steroids stay forever. Or at least that’s what I hear.
I am praying for you to get better soon, especially your vision! (Well, OK, all of you, but I think of your vision the same way I would mine…)
you are going to audition for the gladiators!! 🙂
ohh yeah…that looks awesome!! 🙂
