Lisa,

I'm reading and wishing you both the best. I know a little (OK, very little)about how the immune system is supposed to be controled, but when it comes to anybody I care about I am nervous about many interventions. I guess a little knowledge is dangerous.

I can only be glad that you see any improvement with prednisone. We're having what I think of as northern California weather: bright blue sky, cool wind, walzing clouds. I hope you enjoy the same.

many, many best wishes,
MJ

Thanks everyone, we had a good weekend laugh

Some blood here and there, but nothing major, and it was just nice to have a weekend together. The pred has made a big difference, though I know that it's not "the" answer. At least it's giving him some relief, and hopefully keeping him here longer!

I'm in the middle of a grand experiment, which is either really good, or really bad, I guess I'll know in another few days. The encouraging part to this is that there has been no bleeding today, so holding my breath.....

Mary Jane, so glad you had such a nice day. Bubble Boy and I have been on house arrest until we get this nose healed a bit more - too many smells outside, and even the act of holding his head down seems to increase pressure on that darn nose - am hoping to get past this soon, and get working on all the other stuff!

Can't quite find a smiley for mad scientist, but crossedfingers cheers

Whatever helps Max is what's important so for now the pred. is a plus and you can think about tapering it later. Glad there hasn't been any bleeding today too. We're rooting for you and your guy! hug

Two steps forward, one step back. Guess it's better than the other way around?

Stupid frickin' nose...just gotta play with dosages I think. I also think that Max is getting as frustrated as me, but he's such a good boy.

Will hopefully have some better updates this week!
