Good News: Clear Lungs!

Little B had an appointment at the respiratory center on Tuesday and - lo and behold! - his lungs are clear. At risk of jinxing myself, I can't believe we've gone since LAST JANUARY with no pneumonia and no major attacks.

Things are looking so good, the doctor is talking about lowering him to Flovent 44 for the summer. Considering we were on 440mg this time last year, it's really almost too good to be true.

His regular pediatrician says this is because we treated the asthma so aggressively in the early days.

So I guess all that Orapred has paid off. It's nice to know I didn't spend all the days with a near-psychotic toddler for nothing.
