My hearing is coming back, steadily. Third day of high dose of steroids. From tomorrow tapering off begins. So far no weight gain of even an ounce. Yay!! I have stuck to my calories with mostly vegetables and fruits. Hope to exercise too at the cardiac rehab next week. No fluid retention from the steroid, Prednisone yet, getting rid of it with the natural diuretic - Zico coconut water which also has electrolytes naturally! Also having cut my Pulmonary Hypertension oral drug by half has helped reduce the fluid retention that causes... Being aware of what you are on and its effects, sure helps. Thank you for your friends and much needed hugs. They sure helped me get over the initial shock and accept everything that is happening. Thank you, thank you, thank you dear Manasa, Komal and GayLinn.
