@mrbill– Hospitals, double-edged swords, eh? I hate needles. A lot of times they hurt and then the nurse won't re-position it thinking that she did a great job. I once had a nurse out a needle in a vein near my tricep because she couldn't find a good vein anywhere else. I had another nurse take it out and put it where it should have gone. I have great veins. lol

So how are you doing in general? What are you doing during the day?

Merry,
In general I am not doing bad at all. Considering the COPD, Cancer, and a few other health concerns. I just go about my day trying to keep up. Like mowing the grass, weed trimming, etc. Went to grocery store for curbside, drugstore, swept the garage, and cleaned out inside of two cars today. So I try and keep up. I can't sit on my duff unless I have a good book, maybe a glass of wine to go with it. It really bothers me though when the kids tell me to sit and take it easy. I dunno, must look worse than I feel.
I really do not need rescue inhaler unless it is one of those muggy days. Then if I take it easy I am ok without inhaler.

Fracturedd,
The Nurse told me they had to wean me off Prednisone. Was taking 30,they dropped me to 20 for several days, and on till I got too five. I had some issues when they went from 30 mg to 20 mg. But it cleared.
