We started an anti-viral. In this case because
of the low Natural Killer cells, I turned to the anti-viral a little more quickly. She
went through a 10 day period of a negative. It was kind of like you were kicking up a
background virus. The kid was irritable, cranky, and somewhat more obnoxious. But then she
came out of that doing better.
So here we are in early 1996. Were adjusting her SSRI. She actually did not at
first tolerate going up to ¾ of a cc. on the Prozac. I had to back down to a ½ cc. But,
a few months later, not only had she toilet trained, but also I was able to move her
Prozac up to 1 cc. and she kept doing better. This shows a little bit how the whole brain
is evolving. I could have said that Prozac wasnt going to be right for this child.
But, this is where the feedback from all of you is important. You have to sort out each
step with your child. You have to figure out whats right and wrong. Clinically, this
is still the hard part.
We changed her to Amphoteracin. She seemed more with it. In August of 1996 she started
in a regular kindergarten.
