    • Dorothy was living with her daughter, Gretchen BALLEMA, winter 2003-4. " My Mom (Dorothy) is now with us for the winter months. She has recently been diagnosed with PMR and is taking Prednisone. She is very weak and shaky. It is good to have her around, but it seems strange that she cannot do all the things I'm accustomed to seeing her do. She is now decreasing her dose of prednisone and it throws her body into a tailspin with each decrease. She'll work through it, but it's a tough go". (Gretchen Ballema, January, 2004)
