At least we tried....

I had my monthly GI visit today. And after repeatedly getting sinus infections, my GI and I decided that it would be best to stop my Humira injections.

This sucks because the Humira is actually doing its job for my Crohn's. However, because it greatly suppresses my immune system, infection takes over.

He is putting me on 6mg/daily of Entocort (sp?) and I only have 2 more weeks worth of weaning off of the Prednisone. Entocort is supposed to have WAY less side effects than the Prednisone.

I will also continue with my Pentesa (anti-inflammatory) at 3000mg/daily.

Please keep me in your prayers!
