January 30th, 2009
We just saw the doctor and he gave us a little more information on what is going on. They aren't going to start taking him off the IV drug until Sunday or Monday, at that point they will start slowly taking him off the drug a little bit each day, no more then 1mg a day, taking about 4 days to get him off it totally. By doing it this way they can closely monitor how he is reacting to getting off the meds. Then they will wait 24 hours before trying the new meds, to give his system a rest. Then they will try the new drug and watch him closely before making a final decision. So we will be here for AT LEAST another week.
