Day 3 wrap up

Posted: March 21, 2012 by creedsstory in Uncategorized

Another day has ended…overall it’s been an ok day. No huge leaps forward, but no steps back…we’ll take it. This afternoon Creed’s dad and I had a pretty lengthy convo about Creed’s treatment. We both feel like we’ve watched and waited long enough. One of the big things weighing on me is that I feel the steroids have totally caused this problem. Creed’s been taking an enormous dose for 3 months and this all started when he started on those nasty things. On the flip side the steroids have stopped the antibody in his body that continued to destroy his red blood cells. It’s just never fair or easy for him. After explaining all this to his doctor we decided that we were going to consult infectious disease to get in on all of this craziness. Around 11:00pm our doctor called with what might be the cause of all of this. It’s called a threadworm. It causes issues in your gut and worsens with steroids. Creed has begun the treatment for this as of midnight. We can only pray that this is what’s going on. If not at least we’re all taking actions and not just waiting and watching. Please continue to pray for answers, just incase this isn’t it.

Much love,
Creed’s mom

    Stephanie, your updates mean so much. My bible study group and I have been praying for Creed for so long!
