Because it is 10 days after my 3rd dose and I had no side effects at all!
Looks like I am staying on Remicade and I wanted to update and let everyone know
because I may have scared some with what I thought was my reaction/hospitalization after the 2nd dose.
I now believe it was as the doctors said, an opportunistic infection that was just able to thrive due
to the steroids and possibly Remicade's immunosuppressant effects.
