It does make for a long day and increased stress taking Isaac somewhere for 5 hours every 3 weeks to have this done. I personally don't know if it's worth the stress. I am working on getting an alternative treatment that can be done in the home that may not take as much time.
In case you missed why we are doing this...
-Isaac has a condition called hypogammaglobulinanemia
-This means that he is very prone towards infections that normally are defended against by antibody responses. He also has a low white blood cell count which makes him very prone to illness.
-IVIG is called intravenous immunoglobulin. It contains antibodies from over a thousand blood donors. Isaac gets this through his port a cath so he doesn't feel any pokes or any pain during the administration. It usually takes 3-5 hours to administer and is usually done every 3-4 weeks.
We could use some prayers that
-We have wisdom to know what avenue to take next with this.
-We can get it done eventually in the home (before I go insane).
-He can start attending his school again by the spring.
