    How's he doing, Aneinu? The high doses of Prednisone should be giving him a nice aurge of strength and appetite (hence the joke above about Klondike ice cream bars I think) but also maybe a nice surge of, um, emotions and wakefulness, to put it nicely. Anyway, thinking of you two

    Birdie can post a pic of a Klondike Bar. It will taste very good to your son and be his reward for getting the treatment and starting to recover!
    Not sure where you are or if these are available, but I'm sure there are substitutes available (though Birdie might argue.)

    Thank you to all of you.
    The appetite we have seen.
    He can't stop eating.
    Sushi, meat and candy.
    The strength we have not seen.
    Thank you again

    High dose prednisone boosts metabolism, skyrockets metabolism is more accurate. More food is needed just to maintain weight and energy. Doctors say not to worry about weight gain, I think because it's normal on pred, but it doesn't have to happen. It's hard to shed the extra weight so I watched it carefully and didn't gain weight. But hey, getting Wegener's under control is the primary concern right now.

    We have a kosher diet, so we will need to search for a good imitation.

    Don't dread pred.... it is only unpleasant for some people, and may actually make you feel pretty good, as happens with others. I've always kind of liked pred, to a point, though I've now been on that ride too long and would like to get off.
