I have a real love-hate relationship with Prednisone! I wound up sick… again! Now my asthma is flared andI coughing my fool head off. My peak flow tanked and I'm supposed to be leaving for a quick girls' trip to yosYosem with my dd to celebrate her birthday on Wed. Cue my second pred taper in less than a month! Ugh !
The last one was about 2 weeks ago – not sure what was causing the flare, but a shot of pred and antibiotics cleared things up in a couple days. I was good for a little over week and then caught some upper respiratory infection .I cannot win !
The good news is that the dose I took earlier today seems to be loosening things up. The bad news is that I feel like I'll never sleep again! I'd go out to the couch and watch TV, but dad has a friend visiting and she's on the couch. So I'm stuck with late night Pawn Stars instead of access to better options lol.
Instead, I'm researching restaurants in the town we are staying in. It's about an hour outside the west or south entrance to the park. It's supposed to rain parts of the time and I'm hoping the temps stay high enough that it's not snowing! I'm taking the all-wheel drive, so should be fine. But I haven't driven in snow in years.
I found a diner that will work for breakfast! They have gluten-free bread an option – and don't even charge extra! I think we'll do breakfast there one morning and get cold sandwiches to go for lunch.
Then there is the steakhouse diner we always eat at that I know works. But I was looking for other options.
Oh and I found a cheese making place that has tours we can stop at on the way. Not sure I can wrangle dinner there though. A couple things look possible so I sent an email to ask. Hopefully the respond quickly.
Ok, I've rambled enough….but I figured since we often wind up on pred and then have insomnia, there might as well be a ramblings thread to ramble on.
