With EoE, Allergies, Asthma and a G-Tube

Wheezing Cold

The boys are both healthy right now. As the fall weather is trying to set in the evenings are getting rather cool. We were outside tonight for maybe a half hour. When we came in it was time for bed. While taking their allergy medicine and vitamin Gage choked and coughed. This has been sort of normal for him lately so I didn’t think too much of it. Off to bed and everything is fine. As I leave I hear Gage cough a few times. Nathan and I were talking in the kitchen not 5 min later Gage came out. He has been doing this for quite a while, it’s an ongoing battle to keep him in bed. He says he’s “weeing”. I asked him to say it again, he did then blew all his air out so I could hear it. So I put my ear to his back and sure enough it sounded like a scratchy record in there. This was a first for him having an attack just from the cold air. So I pour the albuterol in the nebulizer and he gets to cuddle with me and watch a 15 min cartoon. He was totally clear after the treatment.
I’m really hoping his asthma isn’t getting worse. This will make for a horrible winter mixed with his wheezing that comes with every cold.
