[MOL] Nisi



Pop has been on Prednisone since late March for this problem and it really
has helped.  Only thing is - Pred. is pretty rough on the body after a
while.  (He says his teeth even hurt!  But not too much else.)  He read
something scary about what it does to the major organs and has sworn to wean
himself off ASAP.  The local MD put him on Flovent, which turns out to have
a form of steroid in it.  Pop's still taking 1/2 a Pred at night to help him
sleep without a struggle breathing.  His Onc. in FL said it takes a couple
of months to get the elasticity back in his lungs and he may just have to
stay on a little Pred. to get through.  Your Dad may want to try this route
as well.
