Bryn's now two weeks into a bout of congestion, which probably means another sinus infection, at the very least. Poor guy. Over the last two weeks, we've seen the following symptoms:
- Shortness of breath after activities requiring little effort
- Spells of poor appetite
- Night waking
- Inexplicable crankiness and/or tantrums
- Sporadic, dry coughing
I often wonder how many of these symptoms are in my head, but two weeks of mispronouncing "n" and "m" are indisputable.
So...it's off to the pulmonologist. I'll feel better (or, possibly, terrified) when I see his pulse-ox numbers. Admittedly, I may also feel incredibly foolish (and elated) if she listens to his chest and hears nothing.
Life will be just *that* much easier when he's old enough to use a peak flow meter. For now, I sure wish I could get one of those little pulse-ox finger meters!
