Good News!

I am not so bed ridden right now. I am feeling so much better! Last Friday I could not stand very well on one leg, today I can stand on one leg and lift it quite high! The prednisone I am on creates muscle loss but I'm being weened. Nothing I did before could help me get much stronger but the weening is now making such a difference. I was actually able to go out tonight (which is why I haven't pulled the draw yet. I'm doing it tomorrow).

I feel a bit silly but I am so excited! I'm starting to feel like I may have a life again! I also checked my blood work results and my liver function is continuing to improve so I called my oncologist and asked if I could lower the dose again. She said yes and I didn't even have to travel to Vancouver!!! I feel like a kid at Christmas.

In about two weeks I should feel even a bit better! I'm getting some quality of life back.

Soon I'm going to be able to take Skully's advice, make a hoop and and get my wiggle on. Check out the 2 videos on her blog, they will awe and inspire you! She even has a site about it, Hyperloop Hoops.
Feel'n good for once! Woohoo!

Remember to check later Sat. for who won the magazine!
