About 2 years ago, we noticed that whenever the Princess caught a cold, it takes a turn for the worse. She holds a cold for about 3 weeks minimum and becomes a restless sleeper with a nagging cough. At the absolute height of the cold, she wakes up coughing and it continues for over an hour before she finally throws up all over herself, bed, sheets, pillow – everything!
In consulting with her pediatrician, we started with a few tests. She had blood work done to see if she had allergies and the results came back negative. Then she had x-rays to determine if she has a sinus infection – her sinuses were slightly inflamed, but nothing to cause the chronic cough and vomiting. Eventually the pediatrician thought it could be asthma, so we received a prescription for an Albuterol Inhaler.
