At this point, Lainee’s autoimmune disorders are stable. Her red blood cells are fluctuating, but we believe it is because of the infections. Lainee has been diagnosed with a fungal infection and secondary bacteria infection. The infection is opportunistic, and has developed due to Lainee’s suppressed immune system. The drugs to treat the fungal infection are rare and in special form, liquid, because she is so tiny. Just one week of this medication costs $120 (on top of the costs for the other 8 medications she is on; Mycopehnelate, Cerenia, Plavix, Omeprazole, Atopica (cyclosporine), Prednisone, Carafate, Hydroxyzine). In addition to the cost of seeing the dermatology specialist, we think that treating the infections alone would be about $400 a week. We are hoping that the fungal infection will be treated in a month!
