A word on Shock

I know this is a scary topic, I don't mean to be bringing up scary things.  However, as I'm learning more (via recent labs taken before/during reactions due to Sam having a PICC line) as well as seeing his body go through full septic shock from bacteria in the PICC line;  I am wondering if the septic-like shock our kids experience (to varying degrees of severity) actually happens BEFORE the vomit??  It is worsened (to shock) from the vomiting, for some (many?) kids.

 

Like I said, hard discussion but how many of your kids had shock symptoms before the vomit?  Lethargy, heart racing, skin mottling, temperature changes,cyanosis (blue hands/feet/lips) are what we see.    After watching Sam go through a full septic shock episode and have all these same symptoms- except very worse (for him, than his FPIES reactions).  It became more clear what I see for his build reactions is components of shock stages.
