Sunday night Gavin started to cough... and cough.... and cough.... all night long. I had planned to bring him to the doctor monday, but he seemed fine in the morning. I noticed an occasional cough throughout the day, but nothing serious. Then he took a three and a half hour nap, woke up with a fever and didn't stop coughing - at all. He would play with his toys, was eating and drinking ok - just coughing. by now the clinic was closed, so we had to make do until morning. Poor guy - he couldn't sleep at all (nor could mom and dad!) The funny thing is, he was acting so normal! He was running around the house at three o'clock in the morning coughing and sneezing - looking awful - but smiling the whole time! Anyway, I brought him in this morning and they said he has bronchitis with a probable pneumonia! We opted not to do a chest xray because it wouldn't change the treatment options anyway - so why put him through that. Again though - he's sitting in Dr. Swanson's office, eyes all red and glossy, dark circles under his eyes, nose running nonstop, coughing and sneezing - but smiling and playing puzzles! The doctor said he looked great for how awful he really looks and sounds! I'm glad he doesn't feel as bad as he looks! Now hopefully with the medicine he starts getting better fast. Don't worry though - he still has all that Gavin gusto - he was able to yell and scream at me that he didn't want to take a nap this afternoon - while he couldn't even keep his eyes open. Two hours later he's now walking downstairs - still smiling!
