All Quiet on the Pulmonary Front

Just checking in -- it's been quiet around here, thankfully. Apart from Iggy occasionally retracting and Oz's occasional AM grunts, there's really nothing to report. Isn't that nice?

Hope all is peaceful in your worlds, too.

I have to schedule a checkup for the monkeys with the PP before summer. Here's my prediction:

B: Off everything but Singulair - and maybe even that - for the summer
Oz: Down to Flovent 44 for the summer
Ig: Stays on Flovent 44 for the summer

I'll keep you posted.

Of course, I'm not completely off the hook. We just found out that Oz has astigmatism in both eyes, Ig is spiking fevers today, and B's just been a little off lately - possibly related to the Asperger's. But at least they're all breathing well!!

Poor Ig! Another ear infection, pinkeye AND wheezing!

Post title says it all, right? The kids 15 months old and he's on his NINTH ear infection. The tubes seem to be working -- I can see all kinds of yellow goo in his ear. Blecch.

I have a feeling there's more to this. (Genius that I am.) I mean, let's see - it's his ninth ear infection and he's already GOT tubes, he's running a low-grade fever more often than not, he's got a goopy nose and he's retracting fairly regularly.

Who wants to bet a case he needs his adenoids out before...let's say...Halloween?

Really, I just want to figure out what's wrong with this kid. Between the pain he's clearly in and the amount of days I have to work from home and take care of him, we really need to get some answers.
