Remember my post about poor Meg and her coughing? Serendipitous timing had her asthma specialist's office calling me the very next day to remind me of her upcoming bi-annual appointment.
Her lung function is so good that he thinks perhaps Meg's coughing is more allergy and post-nasal drip related than asthma. She does have asthma, but it only flares up when she has a cold or through too much strenuous activity. So he has taken her off the Advair and put her on Siymbicort, which is designed to help allergy affected asthmatics. We're going to see how that goes. He has also taken her off the Singulair and added a stronger allergy medication.
So far, Meg has been sleeping beautifully at night. He said we would see results pretty quickly and so far, we're very pleased.
Her facial eczema has cleared up and the dark circles under her eyes are gone. She looks rested and she's more focused. More importantly, I'm not laying awake at night worrying that she's going to cough herself to the point of vomiting. Cause dude, cleaning up puke at 3am is fun for nobody.
