HADDAM — When 12-year-old Logan Merwin was 15 months old, he had a reaction to one of his vaccines and began running a fever.
All was to be expected, until he stopped eating everything — except Goldfish crackers, said his mother Samantha Merwin. Over the next four weeks or so, her son began drinking a lot. “It was very strange. He was acting sick, but he wasn’t sick,” she recalled.
