She's doing much better, but one would expect that on the massive amounts of medication they are having her take. She normally takes 13 mg of prednisone a day. Wednesday, she had 120 mg. Thursday they're taking her down to 80 mg. She is getting nebulizer treatments for albuterol and another drug (a method of making drugs inhaled as a cool mist) every three to six hours where she'll normally do that at home once or maybe twice a day.
I was just telling minnehaha K in reply to a comment earlier that this level of medication would normally have her dancing a jig in the street while baking cookies for all those nice kids as the U. All 40,000 of them. That it has her resting comfortably, quite talkative, and only a little out of breath on trips to the bathroom is indicative of how poorly she's been breathing.
So she'll be there for a few days at least and we've come up with some objective measures of when she'll be able to come home. She's arguing for more liberal guidelines, which is a good sign, but has agreed that they are pretty good as is.
I'll be at work a full day tomorrow but plan on going out to visit her tomorrow night and will update again.
