Today the boys will get their infusions of DDVAP (Desmopressin) a few hours earlier so we can enjoy our Thanksgiving Lunch with family here at the house. Jennifer will be doing the infusions with the help of our nurse today. I plan on taking a little video of the whole process to share with everyone.
The bad news is we found out Monday that 1 of the 2 companies in the US that manufactures the Desmopressin has shut their plant down. That leaves a huge shortage and we were informed that the drug is on indefinite hold until further notice. That simply means to us that on Monday November 29th will be Brisan and Parker's last infusion.
At this time we don't have another option to help try to control their bleeding issues which leaves a big void of unknown and uncertainty in that area. You would think there would be an alternative drug we could use but that isn't the case this time around.
Enjoy Turkey Day!
