We finally have a diagnosis we can treat! Thomas currently has an ear infection in both ears and probably a touch of a sinus infection. Those are actually treatable as opposed to the annoying “croup” diagnosis we’ve been getting the last couple of weeks. The hope is that taking care of the sinus issue will alleviate his runny nose which will in turn stop the post-nasal drip that is causing his throat irritation and the horrible, barking cough. Oddly, while he has been pulling on his ears a little bit, he hasn’t really been slowed down by the infection. But he did seem to sleep better last night and we are all glad for that.
