We are done!!!

No more ACTH. Actually, Sophie's last shot was last Friday. It has been crazy busy around here between figuring out what to do next with Sophie's treatment options and getting ready for vacation. We are currently in Gatlinburg, Tennessee. We left last Saturday and we are all having a blast. The ride down went rather smooth. We made our first stop about 3 hours outside of St. Louis at Paducah, Kentucky to visit some friends (Dana, Scott and Brock). Since Sophie's immune system is currently almost nonexistent...going into public places is a gamble. So we relied on friends and family on our trip down with a overnight stop in Nashville, Tennessee at Brandon's cousin Mike's house. So about 34 hours later (only about 9 or 10 hours in the car), we arrived at our rental house in the Smoky Mountains. More to come...

Glad to hear you are done with the injections. Did you ever end up trying B6 or P5P with Sophie? I saw your post on the B6 board last month and wondered if you went through with it. I am trying the same route with Mira again.

My thoughts and prayers are with Sophie!

Sounds like you could definitely use a vacation!! It's been a while since your last post and Sophie has been in my thoughts and prayers. I'm so glad she's done with the injections...I know how traumatizing that was for your entire family. Take care and enjoy your time away!
