Two weeks ago we woke up to rapid breathing and wheezing. Sam was having asthma problems, which have not been an issue before, and it was not something I was happy about since he has been on Flovent and should be "healthy" right now. So we went to the pediatrician for a breathing treatment, and while I was there I called my GI doctor. She said the Flovent is obviously not working, since he also has not gained any weight in the last month, and she prescribed him Prednisolone. It's a stronger liquid steriod that he was to take for two weeks, and tomorrow is the last day. So today I took him to check his weight, and he is exactly one pound heavier!
So today is a happy day. I'll be interested to see how it goes the next few weeks when he is not on a steriod, but hopefully he will continue to grow.
I will say another thing....he has suddenly become a ticklish little boy. I think that in itself is a sign that he is feeling better. :)
