I thought we were in the clear…..

I thought we were in the clear…..

When I woke up this morning and Emmett was fever free and feeling better, I thought we were in the clear.  At this time, his fever is back once again and his mouth and throat are hurting as well. 

To give you an idea of how much pain he’s in, the hospital gave him a prescription for a form of liquid vicodin that’s mixed with Tylenol. 

I think he may have still been experiencing pain relief from that this morning because as the days gone on, things have rapidly gone downhill.

He has 2 more doses of prednisone left, one today and one tomorrow.

Because he was feeling better this morning, there wasn’t a need to get him into immunology right away. There’s nothing that can really be done that isn’t already happening.  Plus, Emmett associates that doctor with needles and so it would be meltdown city.

He’s going through enough at the moment already.

I should have known better than to think we were in the clear.  Maybe I jinxed him or something. 


Also, what looked like thrush, doesn’t appear to be there anymore.

Rob, I know you didn’t think it was coxsackie virus, but I will share the tip we got from the doc for managing the pain from those mouth sores. We mixed liquid benadryl (OTC) with viscous lidocaine (Rx) and dabbed that on his sores with a Q-tip as needed. It seemed to work pretty well to dry out the sores so they’d begin healing and to reduce his oral pain.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
