The Prednisone and Cyclosporine are taking a toll on his body. He can't sleep well so he is always tired. His body wants to sleep but his brain won't let him. He never feels like he slept well. He takes one or two naps during the day to try and catch up. The night time is the worst. Next Tuesday he starts to taper down on the Prednisone. Each week it will drop and then daily until they deem him clear to stop altogether. He's getting use to the mask and we keep bottles of Purell everywhere.
I have come to have great respect for caretakers; the ones who devote their time and energy to their loved ones. Especially those who care for individuals with chronic illnesses or disabilities that require years of attention. They are the real heroes.
Know that Kevin is well, exhausted, but well.
