The IVIG Infusion

The IVIG Infusion

Instead of going to school tomorrow, Gavin will be heading up to Akron Children’s Hospital.  He will be receiving his monthly antibody infusion, to treat his primary immunodeficiency.

I haven’t written much about that lately and thought that perhaps some of you were unaware that Gavin receives IVIG every month.


I think he’s quickly approaching the 2 year anniversary of his first infusion. He will need these for the rest of his life, barring some break through in medical science. He typically does pretty well with these infusions and his body seems to tolerate the foreign antibodies pretty well.

I wish this wasn’t necessary but unfortunately, it is.

Hopefully, tomorrow will be another relatively pain free experience for him.
Fingers crossed.  🙂
