Doctor’s Visit 2.6.2013

We met with Dr. Grossman today for him to look at the MRI and discuss the results. There is quite a bit of swelling on the brain. Therefore, she has been throwing up, and sleeping a lot. The immediate plan is to put the steriods up to 24 mg a day (she’s been on 4mg a day lately) That should decrease the swelling, and hopefully that will stop the vomiting and sleepiness. On Monday they’ll discuss her case with a board of doctors, and then let us know what they recommend that we do as far as treatment plans. 

So if you see a great improvement in Mom in the next week, you can say thanks to the steriods 🙂 The benefits are great….and the side affects, well, not so great. (if you see sleepy daughters…that’s cuz the steriods are working 🙂 Another note: J.R. got his license!! He walks around with a big smile 😛

Blessings on your day, and thanks for you interest in ours.
