Yesterday Andrew had his well child check up with our friendly doctor. He had a runny nose for a while now, and yesterday he starting coughing a bit, but didn’t act sick, didn’t have a fever, etc. Since we were already at the doctor I had him listen to his lungs. The doc said that he could hear a few rattles so was going to have Andrew get a chest x-ray, but thought it was just his lingering cold and sure the x-ray wouldn’t show anything. Well…he was wrong. Dr.’s nurse called this afternoon and said that Andrew has pneumonia…so he is now on his 4th course of antibiotics this year. I’m glad he had the scheduled appt yesterday because I would never have taken him to the doctor for a little cough.
