I have a much larger update planned but for the moment, I wanted to let you know how Gavin’s orthostatic testing went at the Cleveland Clinic yesterday.

Whenever Gavin see his neurologist at the Cleveland Clinic, they have to do orthostatic testing because he has autonomic dysfunction..

Orthostatic testing is simply taking his vitals but doing so while he’s physically in different positions. The point is to see how his body physically responds to changing positions. In a normal, healthy person, there shouldn’t be much difference between vitals taken while lying down and standing up.

Orthostatic Testing Results:

Lying Down


HR 99

Standing Up


HR 121

These results are considered to be mostly normal and that’s a very good thing.. ☺
