The doc was just here. He wants to skip the Humira today, send Bruce home and try him on the new drug, Cimzia. That will require letters, insurance approvals and ordering, plus we’ll have to visit the doc’s office for the injections about once a month. We did the Humira injections at home by ourselves, but that will not be the case with Cimzia. Let’s pray that the new medication works. Of course Bruce will also be on his two maintenance drugs (which he has taken for nearly 10 years), plus steroids and antibiotics for a while.

The hospital staff still has to come by and take the port out of his chest (where he’s been getting all the medicine and nutrition) and do all the discharge paperwork, so it may be this afternoon before we leave, but things are looking up.

Thanks for the prayers, but please keep them coming.
