So I did go to Rite Aid and picked up the Zpack for Noah—

I just went to Rite Aid and picked up the Zpack anyway…I still want Noah to see you, but I couldn’t listen to him cough like that anymore…

Thinking about what has happened over this week, I actually think Dr. Shurin and I might both be right—because Noah got really sick, then he seemed to get a little better, then he got really sick again—

So Noah might have had an initial viral infection, then developed a secondary bacterial infection…

I think sometimes over the years, when we jump on Noah’s infections with antibiotics, they help him no matter what because the antibiotics ward off these secondary bacterial infections that can develop when his compromised immune system gets even worse from a viral infection—

(Which is exactly why I feel strongly that shot of IV rocephin helped him last December when he was really sick with the flu.)

Noah has finally stopped coughing, so I’m not going to wake him up, I’m just going to give him the Z when he wakes up, to get him started on it…I still want him to come and see you, either today or tomorrow, to document everything and listen to his lungs, but probably he just needs to get this Zpack going and he’ll be okay in a few days…

Thanks again for everything 🙂

Warmly,
Tara

(I may not make my appointment at UCLA today at all, lol—I had a bad flu this week too (which is also why I think this all might have started as viral—I got it bad too—it’s hard to tell for sure because Noah and I often give things back and forth to each other—), and days like these, I just can’t get out of bed for anything if I hadn’t slept enough…it’s not 24 hour notice, hopefully the surgeon will understand, doctors who all know me really well do, hopefully he will understand too—)

About hopeforanswers

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.
