+991 Things not going so well with Etanercept

The Etanercept (Enbrel) does not seem to be working for his skin. He's had 8 injections thus far (or 4 weeks worth) and I keep using the hydrocortisone creme. They would like to keep him on Etanercept injections for a total of 8 weeks.

He vomitted once last night but seems to be feeling ok this morning. He had a 99.2 temp and his blood pressure was ok (114/80 - which is low for him). He was looking very red faced and was slurring his words.

The whole family has had a very busy and stressful couple of weeks which contributes to our overall health and well-being. We will make an effort to slow down this week.

Thank you for checking in with us and for your continued prayers.
