I will be very short but this appears to be good news. I am trying to remain grounded as I know he can start to get weaker in the comng months.
As we are starting week 4 of Gabe's Deflazacort weaning, here is a video after week 2 of his progress. In this video are many different impressive things but to me 3 stand out. First is him running up the stairs. This is impressive as he does it a full 2 seconds faster than the video of him running up the stairs in January 2011 yet he is on a lesser dose of steroids. Second, he also gets up off of the ground from an Indian style position with no hand use at all! He has never been able to do that yet he does it here on a reduced amount of Deflazacort. Third is how high he jumps and he appears to jump higher than the previous time in January yet he is on a lower dose of steroids. The only thing that has remained constant is the use of supplements, Protandim, and VECTTOR. He will completely be off Deflazacort in 4 more weeks. I hope he doesn’t get weaker!
