Can I ask how people are feeling about their children going back to school soon?
A bit of background: I am ten years into my second remission from FNHL but I have hypergammaglobulinemia (I don’t make immunoglobulins and can’t fight infections). I can’t tolerate IG infusions, so I am on prophylactic antibiotics. I have no idea what my risk profile is, but my medical team have told me to be conservative.
We took our 10 year old son out of school a week before lockdown and shielded at home together. I am nervous about our son going back to school in a few weeks - I’m pleased for him, it’s been really tough on him and its his final year at primary school so a relatively important one, but I don’t want to have to shield away from my family at home.
How do other people in this situation feel and does anyone have any advice?
Thank you so much.
