HI Maria,

I am still amazingly short on energy. I can just sit and stare at nothing. If i try to read i am out like a light.
Today i did make it to the lab and had my cortisol and a few other endocrine tests. My doctor had told me to go to 5mg after i had the test. It didn;t seem to do anything today.
Yesterday was my second hike. It went well. I felt much stronger and made it up further in the same amount of time as my first day. I do plan on going tomorrow too. I may have to break Buddy's heart as it is full of people and dogs and i can't move fast enough or pick up Buddy for long enough if someone comes along with a less than friendly dog.
I have had some really miserable days with this body between my back/hip and my toes on my left foot. but it could be a lot worse so i will not really complain.

ON my way shopping with my 2 girls,really to return things i got them.
