Hi Nanners: Gson is doing much better. Specialist put him back on 40 mg Prednisone and upped his Imuran. He has a mild case of the flu but it is settling down already. Yes, they probably should have spaced his 2 shots and with him having taken his Humira shot just the day before, that all probably added to him suddening flaring with the mouth ulcers etc.
Have you heard from On the Can? Hope she is doing okay.
Hugs to all you strong, courageous people!
