Off to the doctor's office...
 
Danny had gotten a lot better with the coughing and breathing until a few days ago. A few days ago he started sounding really congested, hoarse, more coughing, a gurgly sort of sound when he is talking, etc. :( I am just really glad that we are getting to see his actual doctor. We almost never actually schedule with him for sick visits even though he usually comes in to double check him anyway. :P He has had the asthma based tight cough a lot today as well and we have kept him inside. :( The appointment is at 3:15 edt and I will try to update after we get back.

I just hope this doesn't mean we will have to reschedule surgery...again. He is supposed to have it this coming Monday now...

Soooo the good news is that he doesn't have any sort of infection. The bad news is that there isn't really anything else to do for him. All of this is 100% caused by allergies. His nose is literally swollen shut anywhere that there is supposed to be a passage or pocket according to the xrays. :( The gurgly sound is from his voicebox and trachea being coated with drainage and the asthma flares are due to the heat, humidity, and incredibly high mold counts we are currently having. :( We are supposed to try a nose spray and see if he can tolerate it but last time he had nose bleeds and kept crying that his nose hurt... I just hope something will help him.

Is he still able to have surgery Monday?
Poor guy, I hope the nose spray works and he doesn't have any nose bleeds. KUP.

So far the surgery is still on. I don't know how well the ph probe will work out because his nose is swollen shut and I doubt he will let it be placed through his mouth but the surgery part is on.
