Gavin’s not having a good day

      16 Comments on Gavin’s not having a good day

Gavin’s having a rough morning. For starters, his routine is thrown off because he’s not getting his bloodwork done today. The new day for that is Wednesday’s.

His IVIG infusion is leaking from the left needle and that always freaks him out. It’s pretty easy to fix but it’s not without additional pain. It’s good that he’s working through it but it’s not very graceful..

Lastly, and this one is driving me crazy. He has been nonstop complaining about a hang nail on his right index finger.

All of the crazy things he’s endured or is currently enduring, and the kid is freaking out over a hang nail. He’s always been this way and they tell me it’s sensory related. Back when he suffering from very serious behavioral problems, he would punch himself in the face, scratch his face open with his finger nails, smash his head into the wall. He never complained about the injuries he received as a result but God forbid he should get a papercut or hang nail.



It’s strange how he processes pain but that’s Gavin for ya… ☺

    Still not working. In fact, it’s worse for me than it was before. Now I have a captcha on my laptop too.

      Clear your browser cache. Also, all you need to do is be signed into the blog to leave a comment. The captcha should only be tapping in pictures and only needs done every once in awhile.

    My issue is actually through gmail/google, not FB. I have also tried what Becky described and gotten the invalid captcha message- in fact it happened when I tried to reply to your post below rather than start a new post.

    So, I had to set up another profile to comment here. Everything was going fine and then my Facebook profile stopped working. I would try to log in and every time, the captcha code would fail.

    I get Gavin’s frustrations, hangnails make me crazy too! Will he not let you trim the nail though? Of all the things that Gavin deals with, that should be super quick and easy to remedy. Btw- I can’t post from my phone. When I try, I get a black page that says “WordPress Social Login Endpoint”.

      You would think. He’s always been that way though. It drives me absolutely crazy but then again, that’s a pretty short trip… ☺

      I’ll look at the Facebook login.. I think I know what it is. Sorry about that. ☺
