Can't catch a break.

We just can't catch a break with this boy! Ear infection after ear infection, after ear infection. Sinus infections to boot. Just got treated for Bronchitis, diagnosed with reactive airway disease yesterday, now pink eye. I am at home with my poor miserable son today. Plus, we just switched him to a stronger allergy medicine, because Zyrtec twice a day wasn't doing anything for him, and now it seems allegra isn't working either. Kid is more congested than ever. On a positive note, my husband has agreed to stop smoking since he was diagnosed with RAD (which is asthma-they just can't diagnose asthma in children under the age of 2).

  • That's great news about your husband wanting to stop smoking. That should help your son a lot. I hope the poor little guy feels better soon.

  • Aww, poor little guy. Hope he gets better soon. Are you seeing an ENT? Sounds like he'd be a good candidate for ear tubes.

  • Aww, poor baby boy. I am so sorry AF. That kid has gone through way too much in his short little life.

  • Yes, he is seeing an ENT, he has already had 2 sets of ear tubes. They took the first ones out because the tubes got infected, he also got his adenoids out when he got the second set.
