CR is doing better

The steroids have kicked in, and he's breathing better, almost normally now. They still don't know what's affecting him, but they are totally going to re-arrange his medicines.

There was a diabetic scare there for a bit, but they think the elevated steroids have made him test a false positive in blood sugar levels.

He's not coming home soon, though. The earliest he'll come home is Sunday with no guarantees.

My biggest worry through all this is that he's almost 18. When he becomes an adult, we can extend him on our medical insurance for a few years while he's in school, but after that? What the hell is he going to do? All of what he has is "pre-existing" at this point, and I fear he won't get covered for anything the way the industry is clamping down.

Maybe he should move to Canada or Europe. :(
