Good Sunday Morning,
Sunday, January 10, 2010
Just a quick update; Mark had a somewhat restful night and is going through the daily challenges with some nausea and "crazy legs".
Yesterday the Reuhmatologist doubled the steroid infusion to "jump start" the inflammation treatment preparatory to his broad spectrum drug treatments that will begin in earnest this week.
A side effect to the steroid treatments is a depressed immune system and therefore increased susceptibility to infection. Now more than ever it becomes necessary to follow rules for visits: No One under age 14. No One who has any infections in the last 5 days. Please adhere to these rules as Mark's health depends on it and in his weakened state we can't afford any additional risk.
Love to all who love and support the Jeanes family
