UPDATE: Apparently the IV drip takes about 4 hours. We were originally told 1 hour but we started about a little while ago and won’t be done till 5pm-ish.
The IV has just been placed. Gavin did pretty well. He was really upset even though he didn’t feel anything. I think the idea was upsetting enough. He didn’t scream or hit anyone, so that is a big positive.
The infusion has started and should last about an hour. He is currently distracted, playing Lego Harry Potter on the PS3.
We Jane to watch for side effects. This can make him nauseous as well as cause a bad headache. He may also run a fever for a day or so. Hopefully he tolerates everything well and start feeling better soon.
Elliott was really nervous this morning about all of this. I think that when he sees the pictures showing Gavin doing just well, he can feel batter about Gavin needing these infusions.
