Our middle son, Colter, has been having a very rough winter. It seems like he has been sick every other week. Well turns out he has pneumonia in both lungs with a plate of bronchitis on the side.
The doctor called me on my way home from the office to confirm his suspicions that he did in fact have pneumonia. We will have to go back in for steroids if he doesn’t improve with the meds we were given to treat the bronchitis.
I’m a bit frustrated with myself as well as the doctors we’ve seen. Colter has been “off” most of the winter. The last time we went in they said he had sinusitis and that was the cause of the coughing. Looking back now, I’m sure this entire time he has been struggling with pneumonia and his little body has just been fighting so hard. Well, at least now we know and we can deal with it the best we can.
