Matthew is sick. Again.
Back in October, Matthew started coughing. Tried all the things we usually do for a cough. Finally took him in before our trip, worried it would get worse while away. Everything seemed great, just a pesky cough and nasal congestion.
In November, he was still coughing after we returned. Took him in again. Was told to up his flovent and Ventolin. Didn't work.
In December, took him in again. He was tested for strep, told that maybe a nasal spray would help by clearing is nasal congestion, hence the cough. Tried Hydrasense. Didn't work.
Took him back to the doctor a few weeks ago. This time, tried 2 weeks of antibiotics and a steroid nasal spray. Finally, the cough cleared. The congestion did not.
And yesterday, he said his tongue was sore. I took a look. His tonsils are swollen.
Back to the doctor we go. I'm at a loss as to why he is so sick these past few months.
