Please keep Emmett in your thoughts and prayers

I mentioned the other day that Emmett was just beginning another fever flare. He’s got mouth sores now and they are beginning to get pretty big.

Emmett is obviously miserable and that makes for a very challenging situation. 

You can see one of these sores in the picture below.  No one has been able to identify the actual cause of this. Right now it’s labeled as PFAPA, which is a rare fever disorder.

The fever part has gotten better this year, however, the mouth sores have gotten worse. 

If you could please just keep Emmett in your thoughts and prayers over the next 10 days or so, I would really appreciate it.

My daughters tongue gets like this when shes sick!!! I never knew what it was!!!! Thank you for answering my questions about what it could be because i swear even when we go to the pediatrician they dont understand what it is im talking about!!!


I used to get canker sores as a kid, my grams used alum on it, it's a pickling element  you can usually find in a grocery .  Make a past and put some on the sore,, it hurts like a mother at first,  but after the sore is cauterized and heals right up and the pain of the sore is gone. I don't know if it would be too much for emmet,  but the pain level is like burning your tongue or stubbing your toe and last for about 10 seconds,   After about 10 sec, rinse mouth with salt water .
