Well, the doctor checked his blood oxygen levels
and it revealed that he is extremely low. She
made an educated guess that he has what is called
"Cough Variant Asthma". With that she started
him on a breathing treatment
and things improved.
We now have an inhaler (remember this still
isn't an exact diagnoses). We went back for a
follow up appointment yesterday and he tested
at 92%!!! In layman's terms...people under 92%
require oxygen. Legally the Dr. couldn't let
him leave the office until he hit 95%. After 15
minutes of treatment he finally reached 95%.
We left there and headed to get chest x-rays.
They came back clear, which rules out
pneumonia. Our next stop is a Pediatric
Pulmonary Specialist in Phoenix.
We will get this figured out!
