8-21-12/Home, But Still, Uncertainty Remains

I am home!


My white blood count was stable around 1K, but my creatinine was back down to 1.9. My blood sugar is still high – but mostly very high 6-10 hours after Prednisone – still a high dose. That seems to indicate that is the likely culprit.


They decided better to quarantine me at home and have me back to Yale on Thursday for tests then keep me in the hospital. I agree.


I hope to get a good nights rest tonight!


In the meantime, we are still considering doing another IVIG treatment, if not more. However, with more precautions. This will be discussed in more detail on Thursday. It also remains unclear what exactly caused this whole thing in the first place.


I think that’s part of the whole process. There is a lot of unknown and you have to learn to deal with it.

    David, you’ve got, as John Wayne would say, grit. True grit. Therefore, having gotten award, I can also give an award. I have nominated you for the Liebster Award. Because nomination and awarding are in this context identical, I could just as easily say I’ve given you the Liebster Award. Okay, I’ll say it. You got it.

    You deserve it.
