Thanks guys.

He had a great time at training tonight. I had to force him to stay within his limitations, which was much better than last week. Funny how that works...

At least he had a good day. Just a hint of blood, he was in a good mood, and now he's crashed wub

Here's hoping he has another good day tomorrow!

Is this after you pretty much stopped everything apart from the pred?

I guess we'll see what today brings.

Bianca, yes, I think the abx make him feel crappy. BUT, as he struggled to breath last night, it's pretty clear that the abx are his only hope.

I just have to minimize that bleeding and protect his veins somehow. He felt better on the aggressive doxy dose, but that bleeding...other than that one herb, which is on order and I'm almost out of, I'm not sure what else I can do.

Hopefully something will be clear in the next few days. Back on everything right now, I can't let the infection get a stronger hold.

Lisa, I wish I had some great advice. The only advice I have is to really watch the timing of the ABX and when he eats. To keep Lakota's 12 hour ABX schedule I give him pretty good size snack at bed time. I just cheat his breakfast and supper a little so he gets a good cup of food with the ABX at bed time. If I don't do that he doesn't want to eat in the morning.

Is today a Vit C injection day? I forget.

Lisa,

If it's any help at all, there is a huge cohort of people with deep concern and deep support for you both.

take care,

It does help Mary Jane, maybe one of the few things that is keeping me from going absolutely nuts right about now.

I know what protocol I would like to have him on. Unfortunately, I guess it just doesn't work that way.

Val, yes, it's infusion day. Week 3. Hopefully soon we will start seeing some direct benefit. She said often you don't see it until the 2, 3rd, or 4th time. I'm a big believer that it should help something on some level.

The timing of the abx, I'm thinking I need an extra meal of snack in here somewhere to time these better. Good point.

Lisa, it has taken me years to figure out the timing thing. Some times we just can't see past the Schedule. You feed 2 times a day, then try to schedule the meds. Most of the time it doesn't work unless you are just giving one med, with multiple things then it is, doesn't bother the tummy, bothers the crap out of the tummy, needs to be take in between ABX. Oh the fun.
