10 Things It Says

As many of you know, Tim (pictured) is a dead dog walking. He has a cancer that moves like the wind and shows no mercy. After some hard days his vet decided to see if steroids might make him more comfortable and he's bounced back like nobody's business. If you've been keeping up with these posts you know that I am also taking some steroids to keep my lungs from hating me. Today we compared dosages. I started out with 30mg per day and have stepped down my dose by 10mg every 3 days. Tim, who I'm guessing I outweigh by about 1/3 of his body weight, started out on 80mg and has just barely stepped down to 60. Well, let me tell you, I'm not surprised he's more spry. The prednisone kind of does that for you. In fact, the prednisone has started speaking for me. Here's 10 things it says:

1. "Get up. Get up now! Get up!"

2. It sings the chorus to Shake, Rattle, & Roll! over and over.

3. "Remember this project? What about this one? We could do this one! I want a project. Gimmegimmegimme!"

4. "Yes, please, I will have another helping of _________."

5. "Hurry up. Hurry up now! Hurry up!"

6. "All you need is to win the lottery, then you buy the apartment next door and then we start the renovations. Should be able to get 3 bedrooms, keep the 2 baths, hell keep the 2 kitchens. What should be put in the big closet? Oh maybe there is no big closet because of the elevator. I wonder. Let's go look! Do you have a lock pick set?"

7. "Did you hear that? I heard something. I know I did. Just listen. Wait! Shiny, looooooook."

8. "Who told you we need to work out? You're losing weight just sitting here vibrating like that. Trust me."

9. "Why don't you trust me?"

10. "Hush now, you go to sleep, I'll get started on all this work without you."

Prednisone is a liar, but I still kind of like him.

    yay for sleep and breathing, and that prednisone is sounding kinda tempting right about now ...
