Mommy, I don't feel good today...

Gavin woke up this morning in his normal great mood. He was so happy it was Monday because he could go to school (he missed all last week because he was supposed to have cataract surgery in Miami, but the cancelled it as they were prepping him in the OR >:(...). Anyways, we dropped his brother off at preschool then went to his school. As his baby brother and I were walking him to class he tells me, "Mommy, I don't feel good." This was odd because he was feeling great an hour ago and he NEVER complains about not feeling well...even when he is flaring! I asked him what was wrong and he said, "My head hurts...it's too big." I asked him if he still wanted to go to school and he said yes. He told me that he will tell his teacher when he doesn't feel good and wants to go home. I told his teacher that his head is bothering him and he has a sinus infection and bronchitis and if he really feels bad to just call me and I will pick him up.

My poor baby! He did get his Methotrexate shot last night, but he has never had any side effects from it before. He has been on it for over 3 years! I hope he starts feeling better :(

I have a call in with his pediatrician about the results from his sinus and chest x-ray's. I hope she calls me TODAY to figure out a game plan to getting my little man better. In the meantime, I am going to fax a copy of the results to Gavin's rheumatologist and eye Dr. Hopefully they can figure something out together so we can get Gavin's cataract surgery done next month! Fingers crossed :)

Oh, by the way.....
Arthritis! You suck!
