In case you were wondering . . .

Sweet Sophie is doing FANTASTIC! 

 She has been off of the steroid for several weeks now - Yippeee!
Her blood sugar was super high and she was always thirsty while she was on steroids.  Well, as any D-mom can tell you ---- it just freaks you out!!  Once we weaned her off of the steroids everything went back to normal and she is feeling great.  She takes Pentasa (Mesalamine), which is used to treat ulcerative colitis (a condition in which part or all of the lining of the colon [large intestine] is swollen, inflamed or worn away). Mesalamine delayed-release tablets are used to treat ulcerative colitis that affects any part of the colon. Mesalamine is in a class of medications called anti-inflammatory agents. It works by stopping the body from producing a certain substance that may cause pain or inflammation. Sophie takes a pill 3 times per day and she is in complete remission. 

She is looking forward to starting Pre-School again in a couple of weeks and enjoying 
swimming for hours on end! She is quite the little fishy!

She is a little ray of sunshine and I am SO happy that she is feeling better and living life to the fullest!!

PS - She LOVES bugs.
