When you have a child with serious immunodeficiency, it’s really stressful when they get sick. The past 3 weeks have had Gavin sick for the very first time since his IVIG Infusions began about 2 years ago.
Not only has he been sick recently but he’s been sick with back to back aliments.
Last night about 3am, Elliott came into our room in tears because his head hurt. His head hurting evolved into him not feeling well and ended with him vomiting this morning as a result of post nasal drip.
It was assumed that Elliott would be home as well today except that he’s feeling better and wants to try going to school.
The puking is a result of post nasal drip and an extremely sensitive gag reflex. He’s not running a fever and he ate breakfast. The only thing unexplained is the headache but people get headaches and his is gone.
Lizze is battling with insomnia right now which is an exceptionally cruel twist of fate for someone with a sleep disorder.
Gavin’s not awake yet and do he remains a wild card as well.
At this point, I’m begging the powers that be for mercy. We need a break, even a small one will suffice.
