Its been a busy and rough weekend, but it really has been a fun one. We had a fabulous time at the small party we threw on Friday night. With the wonderful guests, the funny jokes and Sean and JP's hilarious songs we had such a good time, even our newest pet has taken to us all. Lightning is a young Fancy Rat. She is grey and white and has such a lovely face and a sweet personality. We managed last night to have her come out and clamber over both of us. She is so friendly!!
Yesterday was the anticlimax of the party where you have to clean the house afterwards. OK so it wasn't the same sort of party that we used to have back at Cat's. The amount of times I must have thrown up and made a mess of the place back then was more than I would care to admit to, but we all do strange things. I spent the day cleaning the carpets, the upholstery and washing all the blankets in the living room. It took a while but everything came up 1 or 2 shades lighter so that was always a plus. The amount of dust, hair and other muck that came out of the living room and hall carpets was more than I was expecting I will admit.
Today was more of a day of finishing the cleaning and relaxing. My asthma decided it wanted to flare up and I became wheezy, then cold, then clammy and the whole routine of an asthma attack began and before I even realised it, I was in the throes. I hate when that happens. No warning before it hits and I get put on my backside. I just did what I needed to and felt better. Albeit a bit tired and aching all over. I coughed violently and a spot of blood appeared in the tissue, so I think inside my lungs is a bit raw. I took my pred down to 15mg today which probably wasn't helpful, but I really REALLY want to get back to 5mg again and stay there comfortably, heck, if I could I would come off completely. The problem with Pred is, your body almost decides that it doesn't want to be without it. I personally could leave them for the rest of my life, but we will see what happens there I think.
