Kian's doing much better!

I don't have much time to write but Kian has been doing a lot better since yesterday! Yesterday we spent our morning and afternoon running around to the pharmacy, the Dr.'s office then back to the pharmacy. It's been a pretty busy day to say the least!

Anyway he’s much more like himself…he’s eating and drinking a lot and playing a lot too. Kian is taking Zithromax (antibiotic), Albuterol (breathing treatment) and Pulmicort (a steroid through inhalation). It does seem that he has asthma :( The doctor said that if he starts showing signs of a cold that I should start the Pulmicort which is a preventative measure for his lungs to not become inflamed and close up on him (which causes the wheezing). If he has more episodes like this, we will be referred to an asthma and allergy specialist. We also asked the doctor about our pets and having to get rid of them…he said that would be an extreme measure and that most likely won’t happen. Just to keep them out of Kian’s bedroom. So my mom vacuumed very well in his room and we are keeping the door shut.

That’s all I have time for for now…Thanks so much for your prayers! We really appreciate them!

Also, I wanted you all to know that I have received your phone calls and emails and I REALLY appreciate them - it's so great to know that everyone cares so much about Kian. I will reply when I get a chance...for nowI wanted to make sure everyone knew how Kian was doing.
