Gavin has been off his blood pressure for only a day and he has already crashed. This afternoon, he had an autonomic crisis. Basically, this means that his blood pressure suddenly crashed and he got sick and nearly passed out.
We happen to be in the car at the time and we had to pull over and part at Best Buy and let Gavin stabalize.
He couldn’t physically hold himself up and it took about 30 minutes to get him stabilized and thankfully he didn’t actually vomit. That would have likely meant a trip to the hospital.
He seems to be doing fine now, however this does raise some concern for the trip to Cleveland in the morning. I have significant concerns about how he will handle the ride up there. To be completely honest, I don’t think he will be able to make it without vomiting.
Worrying about that has also made me realize that there is a very realistic chance that this testing will destabilize Gavin enough that he may end up having to be admitted.
I have a really bad feeling about this and I don’t know how we are going to pull this off. I’m going to try to through some things up on Ebay tonight in order to help cover fuel for the 3 hour round trip and food if we get stuck up there for a few days. Elliott and Emmett are going to Lizze’s parents house for the trip. Unfortunately, we don’t have plans for if he gets admitted.
My guess is that I would have to come home and stay with the kids and Lizze would stay with Gavin. I would have to commute back and forth.
I’m soooooo friggin stressed out right now.
I can’t even describe what I’m feeling right now. It like a mix between stress, panic, worry and the worst case of stomach flu you can imagine.
