Worried about Gavin

      1 Comment on Worried about Gavin

So Gavin has basically slept through Christmas. I’m not sure what to make of that.  I think he’s just tired but something is going on with him and I’m worried.

He’s put on at least 25 lbs in the last 60 days and that absolutely not normal for him.

I know he started puberty a out two years ago and maybe this is just part of that.  However, even if that’s the case,  there is a huge concern over his medications.  Weight gain and hormone changes can’t change how effective his meds are. They could need adjusted or stop working all together.  That’s been one of our fears as he enters his teen years.

All I can do right now is keep an eye on him and get him into his pediatrician ASAP.

I hope it's just a teenage hormonal growth thing, and nothing serious. Hugs to you all 🙂
