My families never ending health problems
 
I wanted to post a quick update on what seems like some of my families never ending health problems.

My niece in Seattle-
Some good news and Bad news for her over the last week.

The good news-
She had an appointment with her rhemuy the other day and there are still no signs of active arthritis for the second appointment in a row. So they are going to cut her down from 10 MTX (chemo) pills a week to 6.

The bad news-
She fainted at school last week. They were doing some kind of presentation in the gym and she had been standing there for about 30 minutes before collapsing. They think it was a combination of standing that long and all of her medicines lowering her blood pressure.

They also think she may have Whooping Cough now. Her rheumy said it sounded like it to her but her family doctor wasn't so sure. So they did the tests yesterday and they will be back on Tuesday and Friday of next week. The doctor went ahead and gave her a Z pack for it just in case but my niece is allergic to it. So now she has a nasty rash and a terrible cough.

Mom-
Mom is holding steady after her stroke. There hasn't been a whole lot of improvement in her arm or leg strength wise in the last couple of weeks but the feeling is returning more and more.

My Oldest Niece Here-
She has been having some stomach issues again lately. She has been complaining of stomach pain and having a hard time "going". On top of all of that she keeps losing weight. So she has been trying a new medicine the last couple of weeks and it doesn't seem to be helping. So they are going to do a upper and lower scope on her in a couple of weeks along with a lot of blood work to see if they can figure out what's going on.

BIL-
He has been having a lot of problems with his back again. He went in for another shot earlier this week but I don't think he will be able to put off surgery for very much longer.
