I really concerned about Gavin because he’s not getting over this respiratory bug. His cough is much worse than last week and Lizze and I are hesitant to send him to school because he has a severely compromised immune system to start with.
We don’t know whether or not to send him to school. Aside from his cough, chest and nasal congestion, he seems fine. My concern is that this develops into pneumonia or something yucky like that. It wouldn’t be the first time.
I wish there was some kind of instruction manual for these kinds of things. I’m totally at a loss as to what we should do.
Normally I would error on the side of caution but he wants to go to school and so that makes it a little more difficult. If he said he didn’t feel up to going to school that would make the decision easier. When he says that he wants to go, we’re torn between being cautious, overreacting and maybe he’s okay to go.
We’re a few years into the sudden primary immunodeficiency but this is the first time he’s been sick since he’s been on IVIG. That’s why we’re nervous about this.
