Battles against terminal illness, anxiety, and life!

For the love of tissues!

It has been about ten weeks of wiping Braden’s face.  He has had a cold continuously for ten weeks now.  1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10!  Now that’s some serious tissues!  We’ve tried three antibiotics, herbals, etc.  No luck in kicking this thing.  It’s really starting to concern me. Now, we have a new symptom…coughing.  It’s persistent, and so we decided to stay in today.  It’s really really cold out there.

Yesterday we took a short trip out to our local outdoor mall, and that didn’t turn out so well.  We got stuck in the elevator for about 15 minutes, and security had to come and rescue us.  Unfortunately, the elevator wasn’t heated, and therefore Braden was outside for longer than intended.  I’m wondering if our extra time outside in the snow and cold contributed to the new coughing.  *sigh* I called the pediatrician today to see what he wants to do next.  Contacting my fellow A-T parents to see if they have been in a similar situation before.

We are doing well with his new glasses.  He asks to put them on, and he will wear them for long stretches before asking for a break.  I’m confident that we have the correct prescription now. 

Looking forward to Braden’s preschool Christmas show this Thursday.  Pictures and perhaps video to follow!
