Autism, fever flares and screaming minions

Emmett has begun yet another fever cycle.  It began yesterday and he is not a happy camper.

Emmett’s cold sores seem to be getting worse with each new cycle.  This time around,  they look more like blisters and have thus far spared his tongue and instead taken up residence on his cheeks and in his throat.

Needless to say this puts Emmett in a foul mood.  Much of his day was spent screaming.

While I was running around all day so I wasn’t experiencing this all day like Lizze was,  I still had more than I wanted to.

Along with Autism,  Emmett has some pretty major sensory processing issues.  When he is in as much pain as he simply has to be in, it’s pretty much a one way ticket to sensory overload.

Once he arrives there,  it’s say to say that we are all going to have a bad day. 

I wish there was something we could do to help ease him through this and even find a way to limit these cycles all together. 

He has missed the entire weeks worth of therapies again.

That only makes matters worse because he needs that outlet in order to cope with the sensory issues.

Hopefully tomorrow will be a better day for Emmett.  He’s my littlest minion and I love him dearly. I want him to feel better.
