Emmett is absolutely miserable. The sore in his mouth is now about the size of a large pea and it’s in a place that is constantly being irritated. He’s spent a lot of time crying today and it’s heartbreaking.
I had orajel, special mouthwash and ice cream delivered at 8am and aside from the ice cream, there was no reprieve for him. The over the counter stuff doesn’t seem to numb these sores and we’re out of actual lidocaine. I have to call on Monday for a refill.
It’s so hard to see him in this much pain and be powerless to help.
He can’t really chew anything and when he’s in these flares, he usually lives on ice cream. It’s kinda like when someone gets their tonsils out, they live on ice cream. The problem is that these sores can last for weeks and he can’t live on ice creamike that. We need to put bananas in the freezer so we can make banana ice cream. It’s just as good and a whole lot healthier.
My hope that the antivirals will kick in and this will be on its way to being over before Christmas. I have groceries being delivered tomorrow and I’m going to try some different numbing things.aybe they will help.
Feel better soon.
