    Exclamation Update on pberggren

    Phil wanted me to let you all know that he is now in isolation at the hospital and will be for a week or so. They have diagnosed him with TB. He wont be able to post for awhile so if you have any messages, feel free to reply here or email me at [email protected] and I will let him know. He doesnt have access to a computer there so far. I dont get a lot of time to call him but I will do my best to pass any messages to him. You may want to also copy him on the emails in case he gets to it before I do.

    Oh Phil, how awful! Do they think that's what has been causing the bloody sputum and lung lesions all these months? Very scary, being immune-compromised. I hope you feel better quickly and gets to go home soon to continue his treatment.

    Hugs to you, Phil. Hang in there.

    (Thanks for posting this, Firecracker. I really appreciate it)

    Sangye, I believe Phil said the doctor said the lung issues are from the TB. He is on three different medicines for the TB and not having any problems taking them so far. They think 4 or 5 days and he should be able to get out of isolation. He sounded pretty good considering. I will pass on your message when I talk to him next time.

    Those are heavy-duty drugs. I think the treatment is 6 months long or sometimes longer. I hope he continues to do okay with it.

    That's really bad news, he could do without fighting a major illness on top of Wegener's. Hope he does OK and tolerates the meds well.
    Also hope that it is a well confirmed diagnosis and not Wegener's in disguise.

    Hope all goes well Phil and you get out and home soon.
