Cathy's Update for Thursday, October 14

The day started early again; plasma exchange at 7:00 AM and back in the room at 10:45 AM. Treatment is going well with no reaction to the albumin. They are not giving Kerry FFP (fresh frozen plasma) because of the reaction he had in March. He is getting a synthetic albumin for his blood liquid.

He is able to walk better, but is still having pain in his chest area with walking. I guess this just goes along with the Myastenia Gravis. He is just now getting his Mestinon and other medications at 11:30 AM. Kerry has lost 12 pounds in 8 days. That's not bad... 300 lbs last Wednesday and 288 today...even with milkshakes! Now explain that!

He has one more treatment on Friday. Plasma Exchange is hard on the body, but if it helps . . .

Dr. C.L. stopped by to discuss long-term treatment options, which Kerry will relate in his blog. Later. Cathy
