I feel like the damned Prednisone is all they cared about. What about the anti-rejection / immuno-suppressant drugs and high blood pressure medication? And everything else, come to that …

So I told them. “5mg every other day.”

And they tried to argue with me and Thomas both. “Prednisone doesn’t come in that size of pill.”

“Okay. We just had to know because we give the patients a certain steroidal dosage with their IV.”

“Which steroid and how much?”

They wouldn’t tell me.
