Just Checking In

Hi, all.

Believe it or not, I am still not over this crud. GGRRRR!! I have completed three rounds of antibiotics. My doctor sent me to get an X-ray on Monday (2/20), which showed that I did NOT have a bacterial infection in my sinuses. Nevertheless, I was still fatigued with no appetite and suffering from head pain.

My doctor them put me on a nine-day treatment of prednisone on Wednesday a.m. By Wednesday night, I was feeling better for about an hour. I also felt better on Thursday morning but was still fatigued by lunch. My appetite returned on Friday afternoon, and I didn’t need a nap on Friday or Saturday. However, now that I am tapering off the steroids, the headache is returning along with the fatigue. I am at my wits end!!

I have an appointment with an ear, nose, and throat (ENT) doctor on Tuesday. I’ll let you know how that goes. In the meantime, please be patient with me. I am so far behind in every area of my life right now. I am overwhelmed! ~ Faith
