Spring Break

posted by:

As of 3:45 today Spring Break has officially begun!  Yahooooooooo.  We’re not going away this year because we have too much going on, but it’ll be fun nonetheless.

I’m putting a post out because I’ve been having a rough time getting off the steroid.  If you have a moment to pray today, could you put one up there for me?  I will take my last dose of the steroid on Friday.  Tapering off has been brutal and I’ve had every side effect possible.  You name, I’ve had it.   Nausea, vomitting, migraines (they put my on a new migraine med and it’s helped tremendously – PTL), fatigue, muscle aches/pains, the blahs, etc.  The NP at Dr. Schott’s office said they will go away in about a month and I just need to press on.  So press on I shall.  In the meantime, it’s gonna suck, but I’ll be fine.  I’ll be fine….I say that a lot lately. 

Oh great God be small enough to hear me now. 

I wish you all a wonderful Spring Break with your families no matter where you spend it.  Be safe, Be kind, Be a blessing.

    Oh, Lindy, your physical strength may not be so great right now, but your spiritual strength is strong enough to run about any marathon there is. I hope someday that I can attain the heights you have risen to. You are my inspiration. We will be praying for miracles great and small, and that your family may be wrapped in the sunshine of God’s love as He refreshes and renews your strength. “The Lord will watch over your coming and going both now and forever more.” (Ps. 121:8)

    Lindy, we are sending LOTS of PRAYERS your way!! You are so strong, maybe even one of the strongest women I know!! God has set a long and winding path for you to go through, but you are doing it better than anyone I know! You hold your head up high, and continue to live for the moment! You CAN do this!! I believe in you, and will pray for peace while weaning off the steroids! This too shall pass…. We love you Lindy!! 🙂

    Lindy, I am so sorry to hear that you’ve been going through a tough time with getting off these meds. I will pray that this continues to get easier for you and that you will ultimately feel much, much better without the steroids. Have fun with Brooklyn home from school this week and we’ll be praying hard for you every day!

    Lots of love,
