Katy has been well for 2 weeks!!!
Katy has been so sick since December. She was literally sick or on antibiotics for 3 1/2 months. We went to the dr. last time and he was completely at a loss as to why, but he gave us some samples of Allegra to try. Allegra is an allergy medication that was just recently approved to treat hives and other allergic reactions in addition to nasal allergies. Katy has many, many allergies so we decided to give it a try. I personally feel that Katy's problem is that her sinus cavities are malformed given the cleft palate and all and that along with her allergies is creating a chronic sinus issue. Many kids need to have their tonsils removed to stop chronic sinus infections, but that is not an option with Katy. Katy has so little tissue in that area of her body that removing the tonsils would risk causing an inability to make speech sounds. I really pray that this is all that she needs to remain healthy. She has been through so much already and I hate to see her sick.
