A Week Later

So it took a few nights of really good sleep and bed rest to end my flare, but it ended. The IV steriods didn't work as quickly as we had all hoped, but by Saturday I was feeling much better and promised myself that I was not going to go anywhere all day. I succeeded, which was not easy. Instead I stayed at my sewing machine and took breaks when needed.

I also decided to take a sick day on Monday and just veg out. It was well worth it. So now I know if things get this bad IV steriods & a lot of rest is what I need.
I still feel "bruised" but the violent chest pains and swollens joints have calmed down. So onto another weekend. I have promised myself to really take the weekends easy... we will see how long that lasts.
