Is this a crisis?

I spoke with Gavin this afternoon and he informed me that he had a drop in his heart rate today…but it went back to normal….well normal for him anyway.

My Mom called to let me know that Gavin has been

telling her that he is falling asleep in class again. 

Apparently, he feel asleep for an hour yesterday and a few minutes today. Gavin assumed that it was his medications that were the cause but that’s not the case. The medications that did change are not responsible for this.

Gavin told me,  “I was so tired in art class that I couldn’t pick my head up off my desk”.

That’s a problem because it’s less about being class=’StrictlyAutoTagBold’>tired and a whole lot more about being in another autonomic class=’StrictlyAutoTagBold’>crisis. While I wasn’t there when it happened, I’m pretty confident that’s what was going on. 

Gavin may actually feel class=’StrictlyAutoTagBold’>tired but in reality, his blood pressure and heart rate are crashing and so he’s not getting enough oxygen rich blood to his brain. It’s probably more accurate to describe what happened as passing out.

We have another wraparound meeting in the morning at the school.  This will be on the agenda for me and as a team, we’ll need to figure out what we need to do in order to manage these situations better.

Honestly, I’m beginning to wonder if school is too much for him. That’s been a concern for some time now. 

The list of shit that keeps happening just doesn’t ever end for us.  Gavin just can’t seem to catch a break.

I hope everything is ok with Gavin. In my thoughts and prayers. I’m having issues with Khai also. Meds not working well. School not supporting him as I would like. Going to arrange a meeting to address issues. Very different to Gavins health issues though. All the best. Say Hi to Gavin for me. Tell him , looking forward to more of his pictures.
