Yes, still around.  My apologies to Vette for not get back to him.  Parents came to visit soon after that and pretty much forgot about bringing up my Pyraderma.
It's still there, but has improved. My GI actually put me on Cimzia. Seems somewhat new. Kinda like Remacade but i don't have to sit there for 3 plus hours. Just to injections every two weeks for now. Seems to be working since the large holes are now just one small one which isn't very deep anymore.  Bleeding seems to have stopped also.  At least i can keep the appliance on for a couple of days now.
But it certainly doesn't go unappreciated. Thanks to Vette guy for offering to help. I'll blame it on my mom since i haven't been on here since.  haha   Ok fine, it's my bad.
Not sure if anyone else is on Cimzia, but the company who makes it or distributes it is called Cimplicity. And i'm fairly sure it's a bunch of morons working for morons.  After finally getting the actual dose to me, they couldn't seem to get their act together to get a nurse to my house to give me the injections. Not to mention not even returning calls.  The dose has to be mixed for a certain amount of time. Which, since they couldn't pull it all together, is now why i have to give myself the injections. Oh thrilling.  But, since it seems to be working i'll be dealing with for a while.

Hi Slice!
Good to "see" you! I'm glad you're doing better, even if it is a pain in the...well, wherever it is you give yourself injections! I hope things continue to improve. It never ends, does it? I feel like there's always something going on with me. One of these days, I just want to be healthy!
If at first you do not succeed, then skydiving is surely not meant for you.

Slice-What's happenin' Bro??? I'm glad to hear that things are improving. I thought maybe between the Pyoderma and the fact that the Bosox didn't make it to the World Series, you were hangin' low for a while. I hope you still have my number, because I'd sure like to talk to ya'. And, just to make it interesting, I'm actually friends with Bill Buckner!! We can talk about that, if you prefer. Bill's brother-in-law actually introduced me to my wife!!!!
Give me a call whenever you can.

Slice--glad to hear the skin is getting better...injections are not easy to give to yourself, even though I know many give their own, I couldn't!
