Medicine Free (For Now)

I'm declaring Oliver officially off the Flovent. I was ready to go to every third day two weeks ago, but then he got sick. I kept with the every other day, but then forgot a day. Since he was doing fine, I kept with that pattern one more time and then stopped the medicine altogether. So far so good!

So, for the time being, his EoE is only diet-controlled. It's my understanding that we were using the medications to help his esophagus heal, so that it wouldn't be painful for him to eat. Once we have an endoscopy, we'll know for sure if his esophagus is doing better.
