Update on Pandas son now 9 yrs old

Recommended Posts

DS was diagnosed with Pandas in March 2011. Had IVIG after having initial symptoms which began in Dec 2010. After IVIG flares were slowing down. It took time - about a year - for DS to catch up on social behaviors and learning. At age 11 today he is 95% better. He is on Azithromycin every day (3 ml) and has had very few flares. DS still has minor OCD issues but it is manageable. DS will say "mom you know I have to do this twice, or I have to make it equal. ". So we smile at one another because it's still a part of him that he and I both recognize is part of the after effects of his Pandas.


He is finally back to being a normal child and I so proud of all his accomplishments.


Parents, it does get better it just comes in small steps!
