Good Progress For Dylan


Hi All~

Some good news, which looks like it's holding.

* Dylan's def. gaining his strength. For quite a few days now, when he walks, it is HIS walk. Not him obviously struggling or weak.

* The kidney function/lab has finally come down into normal levels, for 2 labs in a row (roughly weekly labs).

* He is off antibiotics for a week (but we watch him and report if he gets sick).

* Dylan has gained 6 lbs in one two-week period :) He'd lost over 30. Appetite is NORMAL, and even inching toward 'the teen' appetite again of constant eating.

* He continues on Atenolol for blood pressure, so that's about 140 meds he's off of!

* The chest X-ray of this week is the best news: a few of us here had come down w/ some upper respitory including Dylan. There was one doc who ended up seeing Dylan the most while in hospital, this is the doc for follow up, and Dr. F. said the chest X-ray looks "MUCH better". Dr. F. is very good.

Dylan is well enough to start school. Breathing & stairs, and memory are some holdovers + he's not going to be doing strenous things for some time. But wow, his progress is much better and faster than expected.

Gratefully yours!
