Default Re: Jack the project!

I just talked to the neurologist. He's calling in a prescription for Medrol, a methylated version of prednisone (haven't had a chance to look it up yet) - it should have the same anti-inflammatory effect but not the urinary problems.

He agreed that Jack seems to be very sensitive to the prednisone and says it's a urine-concentrating issue.

It's not that the pred made Jack thirsty. The urination came first, followed by drinking some extra to compensate for the fluid loss.
