Pediatrician appointment


I took the kids to the pediatrician today. Katie had a weight check and my Nicholas was having a "croupy" cough again. Soooo, Katie gained 6 oz in two weeks-good enough for me. Again, the nutritionist would like to see her gain close to ten ounces in one month. Sooo, we're headed in the right direction. Then the ped checked out Nicky. I *thought* Nicky had "croup" again.........NOPE. Ped thinks he is in the beginning stages of ASTHMA! So off to CVS tonight and we ordered the inhaler along with two different prescription medicines. He took his first dose tonight. He is NOW finally sleeping soundly........he's been up the past few nights with that horrendous "barking" cough........

Wow! Great news about Katie. Sorry to hear about Nicky. Hopefully it isn't asthma. He looks happy in the picture though.
