Ug. The love-hate relationship with my computer continues....
My brother was online and I was talking with him on google chat (he lives in California). Internet Explorer stopped working AGAIN, so I got back on and told him my computer was ticking me off. He asked what was happening, and then spent the next TWO HOURS remote controlling my computer getting rid of the viruses and malware. I thought I had anti-virus, but he said it looked like I had NONE. (He's a self-employed computer guru.)
Out of "X" number of files I had 251 infected ones! Sheez. There are still a few issues, but the BIG ones, like all the nasty ads on facebook....are GONE! YAY! And it's much faster. MUCH.
Heard from the neuro's office....my bloodwork is so far so good...there are no signs of kidney problems, Hallelujah! There is actually no measurable level of cyclosporine in my blood yet, and my immune system doesn't show suppression from the cyclo. SO, that either means I'm just going to keep feeling better as more of it gets into my system, OR it's working without further suppression of my immune system, which would be awesome. I'm just waiting to hear back from the neuro on what's next. He'll probably want more bloodwork before changing the dose...that's my thinking.
I also get to decrease my prednisone on Sunday...from 10mgs every day to 10 mg/5 mg every other day. That may not sound like a lot, but it really is. It will help with my blood sugar, moodiness, hunger...which is already starting to abate...FINALLY!!!!
So other than the blizzard warning and expected 18+ inches of snow in the next 24 hours, I'm all good!
