Finding his voice. In this picture, we caught him in one of those moods when he yells happily.
NUMBER 2...THE NOSE: Scott has recently decided to try and figure out what has been causing his extreme morning congestion and general stuffiness. He went to an allergist and discovered that he is, unfortunately, allergic to our cats (and to dogs and some cockroach proteins...who knew?). So he has some medicine to try and I've been washing and dusting and vaccuuming like a good little wife to try and cut down on the cat protein that sticks to their fur/dander and makes him stuffy. The bedroom has also been declared off limits to the cats. (I'm afraid they really feel neglected now!) In order to avoid the medicine side of the solution, he also had surgery Thursday to make the turbinates in his nose smaller, hopefully reducing the amount of drainage and improving air flow. He is recovering well and looking pretty cool!
Two peas in a pod: Gus V staring off at something unknown...as usual; Gus IV staring off in a pain pill-induced daze.
NUMBER 3...WHAT IS IT?: We went to the pediatrician this week and she confirmed that Gus has some sort of food sensitivity (something I had long been suspecting). So we are on the hunt to figure out what it is!! I'm off all dairy for the next 2 weeks and if that doesn't help, we'll try wheat, peanuts, other nuts, soy and who knows what else. We'll keep you posted!!
