Sorry for the delay in responding. Thanks for everyone for their helpful replies. Daryl was very lucky, his doctor recognized what the problem was and the hospital (Emanuel Children’s, Portland, Oregon) was familiar with the best treatments. He was admitted Wednesday, started ivig Thursday, and was released on Saturday!! He started out with mild palsey and balance issues. His first physical therapy was the following Monday and he is responding beautifully!! The therapist says he will be ready for Kindergarten in September!! What a relief! We will be talking to the doctor tomorrow and will ask about neurontin for pain. He is still having a fair amount of that and does get tired quickly. Those should pass.
