Saw the Dr today and got the okay to taper the prednisone down to 15. I think I'll alternate 20 with 15 for a few days before going down to 15. And be a little more aware of possibly decompensating.
I lost my temporary filling tonight. I'm thinking to just have the tooth extracted. I'd decided years ago I didn't want to continue to pour money into my mouth. I'll talk to the dentist on Monday. It's going to take some serious drugs or sedation to extract this puppy. I was so apprehensive just having them work on it, I had the shakes and had to sit in the van about half an hour before I could drive home. I hate that, I never used to have anxiety about going to the dentist. Having leukemia seems to have broken me for dealing with potentially painful medical procedures.
On the happy note, I'm getting more little blue/green eggs! I had a total of 4 girls reaching point of lay, I got 3 eggs today from them. They're so cute, and look so pretty next to my large Marans eggs. I have them sitting in one of those open faced egg flats on the counter. Every time I walk by, a boy has re-arraigned them in a different color pattern . It's like they're writing secret code to each other or something, I just love it.
