Clinic Visit and More Antibiotics

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving! Azer ate a whole lot for Thanksgiving, for the first time.

I took him in to clinic last week, because his wet cough was just not getting better. Better to be safe than sorry, I guess. His FEV1 was 79%. He gained 4 lbs and he grew too! The doc prescribed another round of antibiotics, and we have added Hypertonic Saline and Flovent.

Evening treatment is much longer than before. We have another week left of antibiotics. The doctor said to call back in two weeks if his cough is not better. I'm hoping that his PFT will be better after doing all this.

How does he sleep through that? 

During the first treatment of Hypertonic Saline, Azer coughed and coughed and coughed. I gave him a quick puff of Albuterol after, because he was hacking so much. He has not coughed with it after that, so I think he's tolerating it now. I noticed mucus is coming out easier for him, and he is starting to spit it out.


 My! What good children you are! Reading on your own! (This is a rare event in action, ladies and gentlemen.)


Flexible Reema!



Christmas Time!
