Moving Forward

As Kathryn explained on her blog tonight, her challenges with the Boniva (bone building drug) will probably mean she won't be taking it again. She is stronger than she was a year ago and I think she will continue to improve with calcium supplements and exercise. I came home and found a message in my email from one of Kathryn's doctors. He had read the blog and did some checking on the side effects of Boniva and sure enough other cases like Kathryn's have been reported. Although many of the drugs Kathryn is on have side effects, they are allowing her to live a good life. There are so many unknowns with HPS but maybe by reporting these simple findings and adverse drug reactions we can help someone else.
