I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. Please let me know if you still need help. May I have an update on Pete, please?

Can you tell me, please, for how long Pete has been anorexic and lethargic? Can you clarify if can't walk because he's paralyzed or doesn't want to walk because he's weak? What behavior prompted your administering alprazolam (Xanax) to him? Please clarify "...he is high dtruns..." for me.
