Ship’s Log–September 16th


Ugh, what a day. Thing 2 has developed a nasty cough…so nasty that he burst a capillary in his eye. I took him to see his doctor first thing this morning, and she put him on a nebulizer, nasal spray, and anti-biotic, saying it’s probably seasonal allergies causing asthmatic bronchitis.

We then spent the afternoon with an allergist doing some testing, with no positive hits for anything active this seasons. The allergist did seem to agree with the doctor that the problem was allergies, but we couldn’t determine what he may be allergic to.

Personally, I think he has a cold, but then I’m not a doctor, am I.
