Call to the Doctor

Sean called his doctor this morning. She told him that everything he has been experiencing the past few days is being caused by the steroids. She said that the lack of coordination and strength in his arms and leg is being caused by the steroids and the pain in his neck and back are side effects of the radiation. She told him to stop taking the steroids and was convinced that the problems Sean is having are quite common. He has became unable to feed himself with either hand and I had to assist him today for both lunch and dinner. He is unable to make it to the restroom so we have improvised and made him a homemade portable urinal. He is in a great mood considering and is sitting beside me watching a movie at the moment. He still has his appointment at the end of the month scheduled and I will update as I know more.
