I have bad news about Gavin

As I shared earlier, Gavin had an appointment today with Dr.Reynolds, his psychiatrist for over an decade. 

The trip to this appointment was incredibly difficult for Gavin because his bladder issues were ramped up and causing him a great deal of distress. Thankfully he made it without incident.. 

His appointment went as well as it could, considering why we were there. We were there to both follow up on meds and discuss Gavin’s current status.… Read More

Bad news about Gavin :(

I’ve been going nonstop since I woke up this morning and haven’t had any time to write. Unfortunately, the news I have to share right now is that of a sad nature. I have more to share but for now this is what I have. 

Gavin is experiencing bladder issues once again and they’ve been pretty bad today. He’s getting really frustrated and I’m wishing there was something I could do.

If this slower increase can manage the schizophrenic symptoms and not create significantly negative side effects, we’d be in good shape. 

It seems that in the past, it’s taken a few days to a week for the bladder issues to surface.… Read More

A really important Gavin update

With all the new concern over Gavin’s platelets, I’ve been really distracted and need to get everyone caught up. 

There are two things we need to talk about. The first is the latest lab results for Gavin and the second is a different approach we’re taking with the Clozapine. 

Gavin had his bloodwork done last Thursday instead of Friday because I wanted to get the results before the weekend.… Read More

Gavin’s doing better and worse. Let me explain. 

Since Gavin’s Clozapine dose was reduced back down to 600mg per day last week, we’ve noticed some changes but frankly, it’s really difficult to know what is what. 

In some ways, Gavin’s doing better and others he’s doing worse. 

While on the 800mg per day, it appeared that he was less involved with his gang of super best friends. That doesn’t mean that he’s delusion and hallucination free.… Read More
