Importance of Noah taking his daily antibiotics

Hey Luke,

Noah and I had a good talk about the importance of taking his antibiotics. Yes, it’s not ideal to take antibiotics every day, but it’s much safer (and cheaper) to take a little bit of antibiotics a day, versus develop the more serious infections that I’ve had…

Like this mouth infection I have right now. It’s truly been the worst infection of my life now.

A lot of the health problems I’ve had over the years (maybe the majority?) would have never have happened if I had just taken a little bit of prophylactic antibiotics every day…

Antibiotics don’t help the polyps I’ve had (and I’ve had lots of polyps in various places–Noah will definitely need a colonoscopy at a young age–), but antibiotics would have saved me from the crippling and months long (and sometimes years) of IV antibiotics because an infection got too bad before I got treatment, due to our immune disorder…

I know it’s a pain, I know it isn’t easy, but it will save you and Noah a lot of time, headache and money to take a little bit of antibiotics every day.

(And then more when he goes to the dentist.)

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.
