For me

For any peeking in these days, I could use some prayer right now. Doctor's have confirmed I'm having a kind of flareup, an autoimmune thing that they say will require an extended prednisone treatment. I'm unhappy about it and am feeling unsure right now about what this all means.

Thank you, SP. I get so much encouragement (courage) from prayers.

I see the prescribing doctor next week, so I should learn more now. Up to now, I've only received phone calls re: test results.

Having looked up prednisone on Wikipedia, I can see why you have concerns. I'll be praying ...

Thank you all so much. I see the prescribing doctor later today. I'm hoping he will tell me my obviously improved symptoms since the tests could mean I may be able to delay the treatment.

Your prayers are encouraging and helpful, and I appreciate them very much.

The doctor visit was encouraging. The symptoms have been so much better lately, so the doctor said I don't have to go on the prednisone, that the symptoms are the key reason for requiring such. I've gone into remission without it.

I was so happy, I wanted to dance a jig right there in the office. :D

Thank you so much for your prayers, all.
