#Autism, dysautonomia and the flu

It turns out that Lizze isn’t sick because of her meds.  Turns out that it’s a stomach bug.  How do I know this?  That’s easy,  because Elliott is puking now as well.

I don’t know how well typical kids do when they’re sick but with my kids,  it’s a total nightmare.

Emmett and I ended up on the couch last night. He slept on one and I slept on the other. Thankfully,  he slept through most of the night.

My really big concern is about Gavin getting sick.  If Gavin gets sick and starts puking,  he’ll end up being admitted to Akron Children’s Hospital again.  His health is so fragile that anytime he gets dehydrated,  it’s put him in a dysautonomic crisis. This will lead to him not being able to maintain his BP again.

Last time this happened,  they warned us that this will likely be the case,  every time he gets sick like that.

It’s not like I would ever want Gavin to be sick but I really,  really, really need him not to get sick…
