It has been 4 weeks into discovery and starting meds.

W is really coming along. He started picking up appetite and energy last week, then more over the weekend.

This morning (Thursday 8-15-13) he called to tell me his numbers from 8-8-13 blood work. (Current numbers below)

He is going back to work next week. He said his energy level is creeping back and at times he feels like his "old self." His endurance is slow and he does nap several times a day between regular activities.
He gained 6 lbs in the last 2 weeks.

After his 2 days in the hospital (previous post) he came home with 4 antibiotics/antibacterial meds. The Dapsone was discontinued, due to bringing down his red blood cell count.

He did have an eye appointment and there might be CMV in one of his retinas. This was reported to his physician from his ophthalmologist. The two doctors are planning his treatment. Hopefully, Valcyte will halt the CMV retinitis.
