I am changing my OB appointment on Wednesday to an earlier time so that
I can bring him to the peditrician that afternoon. For the last week and a half, we are back to the puking because he coughs so hard. His chest sounds like I don't even know what. Like there is a wet plastic bag in it. The neb is helping, but not improving enough, especially when he refuses it at night or quits after 20 seconds. 5 minutes on it in the morning is a huge victory. When it is really bad, I am giving him the inhaler straight up into his mouth, instead of bothering with the aerochamber. He won't sit for the neb, there is not a chance the chamber will stay on his face.
I am so done. I can't believe I am going to ask the pedi for oral steroids to knock this out of him, but it's not fair to him to keep using therapy that is only doing just enough. The cold weather is not at all helping and I know that, but I can't see waiting for the warmer weather. It's too much for him.
