Gavin dealt with an infection this week

I meant to share this before but it just never happened. 

Last Friday, after Gavin’s IVIG infusion, one of the infusion sites became infected.  I’m not sure what happened because I don’t ever remember seeing anything like this before. 

I kept a close eye on it because I didn’t want to let it go to long and have it get really bad.  I figured I would give it a couple days and see what happened.  Rushing into anything would only freak Gavin out and cause him unnecessary anxiety. 

After a few days, it’s actually gotten a great deal better and I’m no longer concerned. 

I’ll keep an eye on it, just to be safe but I’m pretty sure there’s nothing left to worry about. 

He’s had an infusion since then and all seems to be just fine..  I guess one of the needles got contaminated last week but that’s the first time something like that has happened and we’ve been doing this for years… ☺


Sometimes I’m just grateful for the positive

After physical therapy this morning, we had absolutely nothing in the agenda.  It’s been relatively quiet today and that’s a nice change of pace. 

The most exciting thing to happen thus far is that I cut up a fresh pineapple… 

I know that sounds really boring but the kids were super excited for some reason.  I’m not going to complain about them being easy to please because that doesn’t happen very often. 

This is just one of those things to be grateful for and not questioned… ☺
