Quick Update on Cruz

I took Cruz for a second opinion today. We went to WellQuest, a place that two of my friends (Mandy and Teresa) both recommended. Let me just make a side note that this place was SO nice, SO up to date, SO clean....I will be back for sure! Anyways, the Doctor we saw said a few things:

*It could be allergies since they run in our family, BUT they can't be treated in a baby this young. However, in one month he will be old enough. That's IF its allergies.

*He said his lungs sound full of "junk". He decided to put him on a steroid and an antibiotic to see if that helps. We actually have not tried an antibiotic yet, so I'm anxious to see how it works!

*Last, he is referring him to a pulmanologist with Arkansas Children's Hospital. Some of the dr.s actually come to a place in Lowell once a week, but it is extremely hard to get in. SO, if we can't get an appt. up here within 2 months, we will be going down to Little Rock to have him checked out. Chest x-rays...stuff like that. We are so ready for some answers!

Keep my lil guy in your prayers! I'm sure it is nothing major, but I am so ready for him to be healthy! He is still so happy and smiley...can't imagine what his personality will be when he is feeling 100%!!
