I hope that you have a good outting for Christmas. I hope your doctor does put you on different meds and tapers off the Prednisone as that is not a good drug for long term usage at high doses. To be honest with you I hate Prednisone due to the side affects. I am also afraid of that medication. I just hope that you have a good time for the holidays.
