We had almost three great weeks, she was eating, feeling good, and enjoying herself again. Her doctor was so happy with these changes, I think it was more relief than he had even hoped for. We realize that the steroid was not really fixing anything, it was just masking the pressure in her head that was causing her the discomfort. A side effect was that it boosted her appetite. We had no idea how long it would continue to help her feel comfortable, we were still taking things one day at a time. But when that days are that good they fly by way too fast.
