Here we are, entering Week 8 or something like that of Coughstravaganza.
Not a lot of sleeping going on at our house.
We had a blissful four nights of silent sleep last week. And damn it, the coughing has started again.
Based on all of this my brother-in-law has decided it's time to do what we've been putting off. Testing Monkey Man for asthma. Apparently, from what I've read, night coughing is a big sign of asthma.
Depending on his technician's schedule, this will happen either tomorrow afternoon or Friday.
I knew this was going to eventually come to fruition. I've been kind of in denial about it because with all the food allergy bullshit we have to deal with, it kills me to know that possibly there's another "lifetime condition" that Monkey Man might have to deal with. He's such a good kid, he doesn't deserve to feel like crap all of the time.
And yeah, I feel guilty even complaining about it when there are kids out there that face far greater challenges every day. But, this is my boy. My boy. The only one I've got.
This sucks. I just hope we can figure out why we can't get him better. I'll take asthma over anything more serious, though. I just want answers.
