I first posted this on the 12-24 board and haven't gotten a huge response so far; wanted to see what you all in your infinite wisdom think I should be doing:
We're struggling with this right now and trying to decide if it's
time to ask for a referral to a specialist. DD is 21 months and has
literally had a cold or some other virus every other week since
NOVEMBER. She's definitely sicker than the other preschool kids and
her coughs are astronomically awful when she has a cold, to the point
she'll vomit and sometimes struggle to breathe for a few seconds.
She's had a nebulizer with various meds in it since probably January,
and it definitely helps her coughing to get the treatments, so I know
it's not something that'll just go away on its own.
If you've seen someone other than a pediatrician, what kind of doc did you go to and at what point in the process of figuring out what was going on with your DC did you feel that was appropriate? We have a checkup tomorrow night and I was thinking to ask then, but I'm not sure what the pedi will say or how much she'll resist my request, so it'd help to know what I need to ask for. Thanks!
Gaaaahhh, I'm so SICK of HC being SICK all the time! But I'm now more worried than annoyed, b/c it doesn't seem to be getting any better overall. Help?
