We got some good news today from the immunologist in regards to Emmett. You may remember that he recently had a follow up appointment and there was concern that Emmett may have herpes and something called Natural Killer Cells.
The doctor was concerned that Emmett may have somehow contracted Herpes and that these cycles were more like outbreaks and the sores in his mouth were actually brought on by the Herpes simplex virus.
In a rare, positive twist of fate, it turns that we know for sure that Emmett doesn’t have Herpes. That’s awesome.. We had no idea where that would have come anyways.
He also doesn’t have whatever the heck that Natural Killer Cells thing either.
I’m thrilled to get this news, I really am. However, much like a backhanded compliment this also comes with bad news as well.
While we have ruled out our 4 year old having Herpes and another immune issue, that fact remains that we still don’t know what is causing these mouth sores.
