David has another sinus infection brewing

I think being back in regular school this year is exposing David to lots of germs again, which is probably contributing to his latest sinus infection.

(Plus he wasn’t always taking his preventative antibiotics because the ‘pill is too big’, so I was finding them hidden away where he had stashed them instead of taking them.)

Anyway, so here we are with another sinus infection. It’s still early stages, so it’ll be gone soon. (I’ve learned to jump on these things the moment it’s clear the sniffles are not going away on their own.)

It’s all good, because David was able to get his flu shot today too. Flu shots (and vaccines in general) save thousands and thousands of lives every year. Just read a book on the history of human diseases if you don’t believe me. After reading about the history of small pox or polio, you’ll never be so grateful for a nice round of needle shots.

We are so blessed to have access to modern medicine. It keeps many of us alive.

Some kind of rare immune deficiency, yet to be determined. A lifetime of infections without an elevated white cell blood or fever. Very grateful to be alive, very thankful for the friends who’ve supported me and for access to literally millions of dollars worth of medical care. I’m not the bubble child, I’m somewhere in between.
