more hospitals

Well the foot hurting like crazy from the last post turned in to another trip to the ER (3rd in 2 1/2 weeks). This resulted in Jeremy being admitted to the hospital for 3 days with possible arthritic sepsis. Fortunately, they did not have to do surgery and he was treated with IV antibiotics for some unknown infection, (not arthritic sepsis) which caused his foot to swell and be very painful. He's been home for a week now and he actually was able to attend school for 5 days in a row this week. That was definitely an accomplishment. He has his homework all caught up and is keeping his grades up despite the fact that he is out of school just about as much as he is in school these days. He did start the medicine that we had received so much advice against starting for him. With the anemia progressing, it was determined that he is probably losing blood still and we need to be more aggressive with his treatments. We felt backed into a corner and had no other options so we're hoping this will work for him. He now takes between 16 and 22 pills a day. Seems a bit much for a 13 year old but he is the most compliant patient I have ever seen.
Before he writes it, let me say... his mother wrote this post.

Hospitals Galore

What a week it has been...
First up, on Sunday 2 weeks ago, i was in the hospital all day because I had a bad cold or flu or thingamajig. It wasn't too much fun. While I was there, they discovered that I was annemic and I had low blood levels, not too much fun either. So now I had to take iron pills.
On Monday next week, I was once again hospitalized for light-headedness, dizziness, and trouble breathing. My blood levels had dropped even lower, so we went up to Cleveland that night. Next morning, we saw Dr. Kay, who started me on two more pills, one of which we didn't want me to go on. And to top it all off, my foot has started hurting like crazy! Oh well. Just hope i get better soon.

Celeveland Trip Fun in the Sun- and Rain!

Wow, what a great time we had in Cleveland this time! We decided to go see a Broadway play when we got there (Mary Poppins), and it was amazing! I loved the tap dancer on teh ceiling. We also went to the rock and roll Hall of Fame. The prices there were crazy, but a good time was had by all.
The doctor visit was not too too bad, but Dr. Kay is expecting another flare up and will put me on methlotrexate (see: bad medicine) when it happens.
Thats all for now!

Cleveland Trip #407986574656

Or so it feels like. Oh well, I took the lacotose intolerance test when we to Cleveland last Tuesday, and I am not lactose intolerant. They made me drink a really nasty thing, though, so I was glad when it was done. However, I did get to play n a playstation, so it was justified!
Other then that, my doctor was sick, so we had to get a "fill-in" doctor, who decided not to put me on this really strong medicine, which they sometimes use for cancer patients, and my regular doctor wanted me to... Oh its really confusing ask my mom.

Jeremy update

Hi everyone,
Jer' had a setback last week. He was experiencing some pain and other related changes that had us both worried. I contacted his nurse at Cleveland and we discussed possible causes for this setback. She did say it could be that he had caught a bug and was reassuring that we'd get him back on track. We reduced the fat in his diet again, Jer wasn't very happy about that, but his symptoms started shortly after eating a hot lunch at school which may have been too high in fat. I also had him stop eating vegetables for this past week and I was very suprised that he had no objections to that recommendation. He's starting to feel better now and yes vegetables are being reintroduced in his diet. He started running track this week. Hopefully the track season will go better than Cross Country did for him. Next Clevalend trip is the first week of April so we'll update you then on how he's doing. Please keep him in your prayers. Happy Spring! PS: My mom wrote this post! PPS: haha
