I never should have come in to work. Had a bad night's sleep, probably due to physical discomfort, and got up with upset stomach, general aches and malaise, no appetite. Still, I felt I could make it. Now, getting on towards the end of the work day, I'm dog tired and just want to get home and sleep! I'll soldier on and hopefully make it to the end of the day (90 minutes from now) before going home. Wasn't a total waste here as I did get a little work done and helped solve a technical issue or two. I really feel lousy!
Right now Tasha seems to be doing better than me. Spoke with Dr. G. today –Dr. B. was ill– and she reduced Tasha's cortisone doses from two tablets per day to one. I call back in a week and see about further reduction. This is pretty much standard protocol where inflammatory bowel disease is suspected. Of course, there never was a definite diagnosis so we'll see if and when symptoms return. At any rate, Tasha is doing much better and, if she lost any weight during her ordeal, she gained back every ounce during her recovery!
