    Kobis Update

    Hi all Kobi has benn diagnosed with diffuse scleroderma. He has thickining around lungs, skin and fingers are arched , all of his body is stiiff and treatment is steroids via drip once a month, immune suppressents daily, physio daily, regular blood tests, is this common form of treatment. l dont know how to deal with being told my 14 yr old has to live with a disease and also kobi when he notices silly little wounds cause big problems with sclero. how can l best deal with these situations as they arise. He loves outdoors, motorbikes, bikes and scooters and of course he does not see it as serious. kobi is the third child case of scleroderma at Melbournes childrens hospital this hospital caters for children all over australia. regards jenny kobis mum.
