I wanted to take a minute and share a bit of insight into what Gavin experiences in regards to his IVIG Infusions. Gavin receives these medically necessary procedures twice a week and will do so for the rest of his life.
These infusions provide him with the immune system his body naturally lacks. Without these infusions, his body would not be able to fight off infections.
While these treatments are a blessing, they aren’t always pleasant.
The pictures below show what the infusion sites look like and it’s incredibly unpleasant for him. Gavin has almost no body fat and so all the swelling is from the infusion
