UPDATE: lung stuff

I saw the doctor Thursday and he has a new med for me to try OFEV (nintedanib). Does a similar thing - stops or slows familial IPF. (idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis) but works differently so hopefully my liver will like it. They check my blood every 2 weeks to be sure that all systems are go. More about the drug here. I call it the nintendo drug because of its name!

Does the drug come with a free gaming console? I'm praying for you as always. S-E

Glad to hear about the new medication, Ann. I hope this one does the job without affecting your liver. Prayers continue.
