We had a good night

Sophie started feeling better around 3 p.m. today. She was walking and playing with my Mom, and I got home at 4 and she was doing okay, with only a once-in-a-while feeling of dizziness.

I took her to Target to spend her Medicine Money (we are paying her $5 per teaspoon of her prednisone--it tastes like poison, and the bribe was my husband's inspired idea. It worked--she takes it now without crying and pitching a fit, with a chocolate milk chaser, of course). And she was fine the whole time in Target, walked around and had fun buying new stuffed animals. It was like Christmas when we got home with all her loot.

And we got together with our church friends tonight, for one of the kid's 4th birthdays, and she did fine the entire night. Not one complaint of dizziness and she was running around and having a big ole time.

I am holding my breath that she's really turned the corner this time.

This is the way it runs its course--she'll have good nights, then be dizzy in the morning, until finally no more dizziness when she wakes up and we know it's over.

I hope to have good news to report Saturday morning.

I'm so glad Sophie had a good night. Hopefully tomorrow will better also.

Regarding The Big Lebowski: "I just dropped in, to see what condition my condition was in" love, love, love, that movie.

I enjoy all the Coen brothers' movies. John Turturro and Steve Buscemi also played in Barton Fink and Miller's Crossing together.

I'm betting things are going to look up this weekend, especially if tonight was better.

I'll start taking that stuff if you pay me $5 a teaspoon. I can always use extra cash.

Seriously, I am glad to hear that Sphie is improved -- that is wonderful news!
