Mason's Doctor Visit

To sum it up, it is difficult for Dr. H to tell for sure if Mason has asthma or not. All of the breathing treatments seem to have things under control....... well kind of.

However, he does have some "junk" in his lungs and has Asthmatic Bronchitis once again (he had it last in January). So, we are on Zitromicin for that, we were switched to Zyrtec for the allergies with the same prescription eye drop and still doing the aero pump (breathing) treatments 3 times a day (more if if needs them) until the cough is gone.

So, we wait and if he has a recurrence, there will probably be an asthma diagnosis. His respirations were normal and his O2 was in the normal range as well. Yay! for that!!!

About Mason sleeping for so long, Dr. H seems to think that his body is just tired and is making up for all of the yuckiness with extra sleep. Not his words, but mine. I don't remember his exact words. It was a long day.......

Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers and blessings!!!

I'm pleased that things are looking up for him. Poor thing. They say that sleep is the body's way of healing itself, so that might be why he is sleeping a lot? Hugs

Happy to hear that he is doing better. And heading in the right direction. I know when I'm sick sleep is always best so I can understand that being why he's sleeping so much. Hope he continues to get better and you can all get back to "normal" soon.
