Well it was a rough night last night, trying to get Ronnie to the bathroom with legs that don't work is not a easy feat. Dr. Martin was here this morning for the good old filgrastim shot. He reported back to Dr. Priesca about Ronnie's condition. 40 minutes later Dr. Priesca shows up at our apartment in his workout clothes to let us know he will be setting up an IV of steroids for Ronnie.
Xavier showed up 10 minutes later to transport us to the clinic. Ronnie had an IV about an hour long of steroids, that should help him with his energy. If not, back tomorrow for another one.
Dr. Ruiz came in to check up on him as well at the clinic (he's such a caring man). He told us this is not unusual and some people have had to go to the hospital for treatment. So its not as bad as it could be. He also said it could take up to 5 hours to see the results.
You are stronger than you think!
