Lynette,

You are having "One Hell of a Day." I am sorry. Do you want more Diet Coke?

I am confused. Has Mark ever really been diagnosed? I read your blog, but I can't figure out what he has.

Please let me know what I can do for you.

Love,

Karie McRae

Hi Karie !

Marky was kindof diagnosed with the label of "retroperitoneal
fibrosis" which means there's some fibrous (grissly like) gunk
attaching itself to his insides !

They dont know how he got it or where it came from or how
to get rid of it. But massive steroids and some stuff they use
on crohn's disease has been fighting it back .

He is still on IV feeding thru his pic line. still highly susceptible
to any bug that comes along...as you can see.

The steroids and stuff lowers his resistance to fight back infection
and crud. so when he gets a cold....he gets really sick.

The future is unknown for him. But the docs are optimistic that
we can get him in "remission" someday and back to his life. !

He's actually gone outside to walk around and play on good days.
So...it could happen !
Thanks for thinkin of us ! I 've got a ton of the Devil Water. Probly
too much ! if thats possible ! love lynette
