Last night, Gavin was on the verge of an autonomic crisis. Because we can never get reliable information from him, we have come up with a system to help.
The system is simple and consists of the numbers 1-5.
We will ask Gavin how he’s feeling, he will use the number 1-5 to describe how he’s feeling. 1 means he feels good and there are no problems.
Last night, Gavin came down and told us that he was at a 3 and having chest pain and nausea.
The 3 turned into a 5 and he was in a great deal of pain and discomfort. We got him his anti-nausea meds and got him to lay down and rest. About 10 minutes later, everything seemed to subside.
I don’t know how he’s feeling this morning but I really hope it’s good. I’m desperately hoping we don’t have to take him in to the hospital.
Please keep him in your thoughts…..
