Update on my Ty

Tyler is 20 months old! I can't believe it - he'll be two before I know it! There has been a lot going on with my little fella so here's an update:
* He LOVES Thomas the Train right now. Obsessed! Andy said he woke up and started saying "Choo-choo" right away this morning. We have some Thomas videos, books, and toys so he is all set from his big brothers!
* Ty keeps getting sinus infections. Like all the time. So this past Saturday I took him in and found out he had yet another infection. The doctor and I were on the same page b/c we both said allergies?? and that maybe we need to start treating allergy symptoms and see how that goes. I was on the same page b/c I'd talked to Cara the pharmacist on the phone that morning and those were her thoughts!! Thanks Cara! Plus he is on an antibiotic to clear up the infection. If the allergy medicine doesn't do the trick we'll go to the allergist. He mentioned the dog and how it would be a waste of time to go to the allergist if we weren't willing to get rid of our dog...BUT not thinking about that until I find out that I have to! Poor Tyler is on a heavy dose of Augmentin. Plus we've started over the counter Zyrtec.
* Tyler had a great visit at CCH Ophthalmology yesterday. No changes = good news! His eyes were dilated, we were there two hours, and all was good. Thank you, Lord!
* He is saying so many new words - choo choo, peek a boo, paw-paw, bapple - love how he puts the /b/ at the beginning!, ewww, wow, !!! He is talking so much more than our other two were at this point. Andy gives Luke the credit for how much Luke talks to Ty during the day!!

Our little guy is doing great!

Obviously this doctor is not a dog-lover! I wouldn't even THINK of "getting rid of" Lottie until an allergy test has CONFIRMED a dog allergy. Ty's allergies could be from any number of things; pollen, dust, mold, etc. Besides, even if he was allergic to dogs, there are measures that you can take to minimize exposure to pet dander.

I totally disagree with the doc about Lottie. There are MANY other things he could be allergic to besides her! That's crazy. Are you giving him Zyrtec or Claritin?
