Another Update on Zak

Ben took Zak back to the pediatrician Sunday morning. The Xopenex nebulizer treatments were not working. The pediatrician decided to make a few changes to his medications and wants to see him back on Thursday. We have stopped the Zantac and started him on Prevacid which is a stronger acid reflux medication. We are now doing 2 nebulizer treatments daily using Pulmicort which is a steroid for asthma. Today Zak is coughing and gagging a lot worse, but the pediatrician said he is fine as long as he is happy, has no fever, and is not having trouble actually breathing. I will update after the appointment on Thursday.
