Positive Update

I am happy to report that I am out of that deep black hole I was in when I wrote my last post.

First, thank you so much for all of your love, prayers, support and kindness. Some of you opened your hearts to me and I so appreciate it. 

None of us are alone. We are lucky to have our loved ones supporting and loving us just the way we are. 

And we have each other. Sometimes we need each other because we can relate to each other's situation, regardless if we have the same ailment. We understand better than our loved ones who don't have any medical woes. 

I do pray for each and every one of you. 

So now the updates, which is better.

My depression has lifted. I am no longer in the black hole although I see it waiting for me. It is probably always around the corner. But I my best to ignore it. I do think the Prednisone had something to do with the depression because after my last dose, I've felt it subsiding.

The excitement of BabyGirl's upcoming college graduation is keeping my spirits up. I am so proud I can burst. It is May 17th and I think I am more excited than she is in a way. Another milestone will be behind us. 

I am planning a small get-together for the day after, because she is going to her father and stepmother's after graduation. Of course, what was supposed to be a simple feat has turned into a challenging one, mostly because I haven't had my car to get to where I need to go to prepare and plan. My car issues are another post for another day.  But I know it'll all come together and everything will be fine.

My pinched nerves seems to be okay. I have to be careful the way I move so it won't be pinched again but that is pretty much resolved.

The skin rash on my foot is a continuous battle. It's just one foot. It gets better and dries like another skin so I peel the skin then it becomes raw. So this time I haven't peeled it but it is so stiff and hurts when I walk on it so that continues to be a mystery. It doesn't itch though. Thank God. But now I'm getting small versions of it on my hands, arms and neck. It's little raised bumps that turns into scabs. They itch but not so much that I feel like I am going insane. I've been using the cortisone cream Doc gave me and I guess it is keeping it stabilized. I guess if it gets worse or doesn't go away, my next step would be a dermatologist.

My friend Jeff was supposed to have surgery but his lab work was abnormal so it was postponed. He needs more of your prayers and I thank you beforehand.

I've been trying more gluten-free products but obviously it is a slow process.

My friends, that's my updates for now. It's spring weather and hasn't affected my breathing so much yet. Love the sunshine and coolness.

I hope you are having an awesome day!
