No Vomiting!

So far, there has been no vomiting, and no loose stools. He is tolerating the Bethanechol well so far.

The prednisone is done, and he sounds great. Much less coughing than last week, and his stamina has been fantastic.

We're on Week 4 of the running plan. I'm making it. Azer is flying through it this week. He is running way ahead of me and doesn't have coughing fits during it. I really think the two puffs of Flovent is helping a lot.


I noticed his allergy test came back from last week, and I can look at it online, but I'm not sure what it means exactly. I guess I'll have to wait until next week at his appointment and see what the doctor says. But, I feel good about it. It makes sense that all this time he's been on antibiotics and his cough hasn't gotten better, that his wet cough has been due to an allergic response to mold in the air.

Since baseball season has started, he's started to have leg cramps, just like last year. The doctors don't seem to have much to say about it. His vitamin levels are all totally normal, and he is staying hydrated. I've been putting Gatorade through is G-tube, as he just won't drink enough of it on his own. It seems that is the only thing that makes the leg cramps go away. I'm just glad he can run the bases and not have a major coughing fit that not even Albuterol can stop.
