Please Please Please pray for Gavin, he’s crashing again

Please keep Gavin in your thoughts and prayers.  If you follow me on Facebook, you are aware that I’m now not feeling too well.  I realized that I forgot to take my Paxil for the past two days and that is very likely the cause of my nausea. 

I went to the boys Christmas program and I’ll share all of that later. 

However, as Gavin’s class filed onto the stage, Gavin was missing.  The staff waved me over and I found Gavin laying on the floor, sobbing and doubled over with pain. 

I managed to get him to the first floor and resting, just in time to run back downstairs and watch Emmett’s performance.  Then we packed them up and my Mom dropped us off at home. 

Gavin’s in bad shape right now.  He’s resting but was unable to really to ambulate on his own. 

Taking him to the ER could actually make things worse and I don’t want to make anything worse.

I’m freaked out because with his severely compromised immune system, being sick is really scary. 

Everything could be fine or it could be really bad.  Hes basically been sick for the last 30 days.  This is the first time he’s been sick since starting the IVIG Infusions 2 or 3 years ago. While everything may be okay and he’s just sick again, we have absolutely no experience with this.

Because Gavin is so complex, anything could turn into a life threatening condition….

I have a call into the doctor and Gavin is asleep right now. 

I’ll be really honest with you all. I don’t know how much more of this I can take.  Right now I’m only operating on sheer willpower and adrenaline.  I was really feeling poorly until I saw Gavin on the floor in distress. 

Adrenaline kicked in and I have been feeling better physically since. 

I could really use all the positive thoughts you can muster.  I promise that when I’m feeling better I’ll send them right back at you.

that adrenalin can be a bitch as it helps in the moment but then it seems you are on the floor again. I take cymbalta (which as soon as my obamacare kicks in i am going to tirate down to something less expensive because if i forget to take the medicine it is hell and by day two I realize i forgot to take it and the withdrawal starts quickly, with me it makes me anxious and then feel like a jolt of electiricty goes through me. you would think that is enough not to forget. I still cant believe i forget to take it. cymbalta is very expensive. i talked to my doctor and he said in order to get off the cymbalta we have to tirate down and at the same time take the new meds. he says that their will still be withdrawals. my new job is going well and i dont have time to not feel good. I dont take that much meds so i dont like the daily pill holder thing, but i think i am going to have to start using one.
