done with dex (for now)

Isaiah just finished a three day dose of a steroid called Dexamethasone that has become increasingly difficult to deal with.  He itches intensely while taking it: the first day he must have gotten in the shower 6 or 7 times in an effort to relieve the itching.  We tried to stay active and also watched a few movies in an effort to give him something else to think about.  His last dose was this morning and he's not itching anymore!

So glad it's over! That stinks that he's reacting so poorly to it now.
I will mentally scratch for him next time!
