Round 2

So, last week, just 10 days after Hunter finished his medicines for the wheezing, he developed another cold.  This was Wednesday and I was leaving Friday for a girls weekend in Washington DC.  Heath and Hunter had lots of fun plans for the weekend and were really looking forward to some time together, just the boys.  I got to DC Friday afternoon and Heath called after Hunter's nap saying that he was definitely wheezing again and woke up pretty pale.  They went to the after hours clinic as soon as it opened at 5pm.  They prescribed the same medicines as last time, steroid and nebulizer treatments.  The doctor decided it was necessary to flush Hunter's ear out because it was full of wax and she couldn't see in there.  Apparently that was very traumatic for both Hunter and Heath.  The rest of the weekend was spent a little more low key than planned, but they still had a good time.  Heath was pretty happy to have mommy back home :o)

I followed up with our regular doctor this morning and Hunter's being sent to a Pulmonologist because he may need some long term preventive medicine if he's going to develop the wheezing every time he get a little cold.  Giving him steroids that often is not recommended.  They call it Reactive Airway Disease.
