Olaf's mouth and throat have responded well to the steroids, but the steroids have bad side effects too. He should be starting Imuran today which is good. In a few months, when the Imuran kicks in, they will be able to lower the Prednisone. It's a balancing act.
Simon had to have his blood drawn today. They are looking for Epstein Barr. He had a fever for five days and now his tonsils are coated in a white plaque. The strep culture was negative. Oh happy day!
