“Reid’s done enough Dexamethasone for good, and for whatever reason, he doesn’t seem to be able to tolerate it anymore. We can reasonably stop the course without long term negative problems. Let’s stop playing with fire.”

–Dr. Garrington, my oncologist, (paraphrased).

My sugars have been the worst they’ve ever been in the past few days, I’m feeling crummy, and happily welcome this reprieve. I’ll still be on Prednisone for five days a month every month during Maintenence, but hopefully that will be easier to tolerate.

–Reid.
