7th Antibody Infusion

It’s hard to believe that Gavin has been having these potentially life saving antibody infusions for 7 months now.

Tomorrow morning,  Gavin will receive his 7th infusion at Akron Children’s Hospital.

He has pretty much gotten this down to a science.  He does really well and spend about 3 or 4 hours playing video games as that’s really the only time we allow him to do that.

They also serve him lunch as well as snacks.

I think that with each successful infusion,  the process becomes quicker.  Gavin’s body tolerates the donor antibodies pretty well so they can more rapidly infuse him.

While it seems like we have been doing this forever,  it’s something that he will have to have done for the rest of his life.

I’m confident that Gavin will once again do well. You can follow along with us as we go through the process.  I will post pictures and explanations for each phase of the process. 

You can get a better understanding of what kids with Primary Immunodeficiency go through.
