A few weeks ago, my baby boy got his first cold. He was 4 weeks old. When you live in tight quarters and EVERYONE is sick, a 4 week old baby is destined to get it too!
However, squeaky breathing and a cold do not mix well. A few days into his cold I noticed he was really having to work hard at breathing...this was not normal. Plus two weeks had gone by and his cough wasn't any better and seemed to be getting worse. So, on Tuesday November 2, I made a call to the doctor and got him in for his cough. The doctor came in and before even addressing his cough right away noticed he was really working to breath. She sent us immediately to Emerg to see the on call Pediatrician.

That weekend he must have caught another virus because by his appointment on Monday we were back in the Emergency Department. This time the Pedicatrician called the Ear, Nose and Throat specialist to come have a peek. But, because Dallin was too mucousy he told us to book an appointment with his office for a week to 10 days later.
So, today we journeyed to Stratford again, this time to see the Ear, Nose and Throat Specialist. Only to have confirmed that the doctor wants to stick a little tiny camera down his throat to see exactly how bad it is. He had hoped that Dallin's Strider would clear up as the cold went away, but as Stephane and I both knew, it wasn't going to. So in 5 minutes I had just wasted another 1/4 tank of gas, for some doctor to tell me something I already knew and he should have just done in the first place.
So, next Friday back to Stratford Emerg to get this 5 mintue procedure done! Thank God Dad will come with me, so I don't have to pay the ridiculous 5 dollars for parking!
