Treatment.

On our way to the wedding rehearsal, I got a call from my gastroenterologist. Since upping my dosages and not seeing an improvement in my symptoms she wanted me to be admitted into Kaiser. It’s probably stupid of me to not have gone, but I told her I couldn’t miss my sister’s wedding. That’s just not going to happen. So she told me that if I am feeling the same way on Sunday, that I need to go to Kaiser.

I really don’t want to go. Being in the hospital is the last thing I want. I want to be comfortable in my own room, and being at Kaiser that’s just not going to happen. She said they’ll start me on an IV steroid treatment since it’ll be stronger than the prednisone. If this treatment doesn’t work then she’ll treat me using the biologics. She doesn’t want to do the biologics because they’ll reduce my immune system and I can be more susceptible to infections and developing lymphoma and other issues.

Such wonderful news, huh?
