Final Doctor of the Year

I finished all the baking for the neighborhood and delivered it all yesterday. Traditionally, we share homemade goodies with each other, which also offers the chance to wish each other a Merry Christmas. I love our little cut-du-sac of nine houses.

This year, I made small lemon tea bread loaves but I ran out of sugar, was baking in my pajamas and the one grocery store in town was probably packed to the brim. I put a call out to Leslie to see if she had some sugar. She delivered it to my door in her pajamas at 10:00!! We had a good laugh.

Today, I am going to pay some bills before going over the pass to see the retina specialist I met last Friday. My eye has not changed, which is good. No detachment yet! I will be interested in his assessment.

Even with all our rains, my pots still need watering so I will be out in the gardens this morning. I may even run into town, after a shower, to buy Leslie some replacement sugar!

I am still not feeling great though it is the final day of 40 mgs of prednisone. It will step down to 30 mgs for three days beginning tomorrow. I was hoping to have more energy but the only thing I can feel is that I awaken a lot during the night. Hopefully, that will change soon. I am also trying to be super aware of my food intake. I am hungry all the time and I know I could pack on a few pounds. I just can't as it is too hard to work it off again!
