Glad to hear the infusion went well!
Well, I have to say (knock on wood) that I've been pretty darned healthy since I started Remicade. Not sure if it's because I'm more cautious about
washing my hands or what, but truthfully, the more "healthy" people around me that were sick more often last year than me. I keep my hands away from my mouth, eyes, nose; and when someone around me comes down with a cold (or says they are fighting it off) my first line of defense is Zicam. It's worked more times than not, and I even pass them out to folks who say they are coming down with a cold. They now swear by it too! I have a job that requires me to travel quite a bit, so I'm in the some of the germiest places ever....but hand santizer and good ole' fashioned soap works well. Another good thing; when you hear the flu or colds start moving through your area, have him shower at night before he goes to bed. I use the bacterial wipes too; not sure if they help, but hey, I like to keep the house clean!
I'm not sure what the NaCI is...I'll try and find something on that. Take care, and glad things went well for your son.
