May 4, 2009

We have finished our full course of antibiotics so now it's a waiting game to see how long we can get in between infections. The infusions are going well and his body is tolerating them VERY well. We still need to work on his mental stress from "the sharp needle". Once the needle is in he is fine. He still infuses 16ML of Vivaglobin every Friday. We are doing our best to avoid this "dreaded" N1H1 Flu. Many of the schools around us have closed due to the flu but so far we are in the clear.

He recently participated in a Karate competition, he place third in the sparring . His other extracurricular activities for the week were canceled due the N1H1 Flu.

We are gearing up for the IDF Convention in Orlando. For myself and my husband this is going to great learning experience. For my little guy its going to be an opportunity to go see Mickey Mouse. He also will get to meet other kids that share the same story as him. Hopefully this will help him realize he is not alone. We are in the process of getting him set-up with a pediatric counsler that specializes in children with chronic conditions.

Next month he gets his blood drawn to see where his IGG levels are and to see if his Vivaglobin dosing needs to adjusted.
