Kate's body fat is redistributing to her face and belly again and we can tell that she isn't feeling as well, preferring to sit on the couch and snuggle to doing anything else. Another significant side effect of the steroids is "roid rage". The steroids make Kate more irritable and impatient but according to our doctor her symptoms are relatively mild. Some kids are down right mean - hitting, biting, screaming and even require medication because they are dangerous.
This go around Jason and I have perspective on our side, though. We know that in another week, we'll have our sunny Kate back and the food cravings will have disappeared as fast as they came. Thank heaven!
