If it's not Crohn's it's apparently strep. Sigh.
Being on Remicade to keep Crohn's in remission is an AWESOME blessing! However, that drug is an immunosuppressant which by just reading the word, it's obvious that it does in fact suppress his immune system. Making him more susceptible to viruses, bacteria, and the normal yuck passed around.
And this time of year is not the most ideal time to be lacking in such a luxury as an immune system.
Somewhere Ryan has picked up a nasty case of strep-painful throat, red tonsils, green drainage, throat pus pockets, the works. He's on an antibiotic (which we quadruple checked is safe with his Remicade) and we are praying for health!
Right now he is resting, overdosing on throat lozenges, and I think the tally so far is that I've received THREE text messages telling me to get my man a peanut butter shake! There must be some mystical property in that delicious concoction I'm unaware of :)
Prayers please! Kick this strep Ryan Decker!
Got to get his daily hit of Ricola honey herb throat lozenges
