It appears that Emmett has rolled out of his last fever flare and right into another one. That makes it only 3 days or so between flares. This has happened a few times before but not very often.
I suppose this answers the question as to whether or this this was a one time thing.
Apparently, the flares are back, at least for now anyway. I have a thousand things racing through my head right now.
Emmett’s going to be absolutely miserable and is already beginning to get cranky. The other thing I fear is how this will impact school in the fall. Most schools have a policy in place that says something like, any child with a fever of 101°F or above must stay home.
While to the best of our knowledge, he’s not contagious, we would still have to work that out.
The other issue is that even if we can work around the fever policy, which I’m pretty sure we can, Emmett’s in no shape to go to school during a flare. I’ll be really honest, he’s not fun to be around during a flare..
Right now we’re going to just keep an eye on him.
He’s already warm to the touch, falling asleep during the day and very, very easily agitated.
Please keep him in your thoughts and prayers. This is a truly horrible experience for him, each and every time. You can probably include the rest of us if you don’t mind. We’ll need all the help we can get.
