It seems Tyler took a turn for the worse last week and we don't know exactly why. His congestion returned and his energy took a downturn. We talked to his nurse on Friday and found out a few more medications that he could take for relief. Also, she said that even though he only took 5 days of antibiotics, the medicine would stay in his system for 10 days.

But after a rough weekend, he called the doctor again today and got wedged into their schedule. First, they asked him to stop and get a chest X-ray on the way in. Unfortunately, the X-ray didn't help them determine what was happening exactly.

At this point, the doctor's best guess is that he'll continue to fight this infection and feel better. If his coughing continues to get clearer and less often, than we are good. If he is feeling any worse, we have to go back in for a CT Scan to rule out a blood clot in his lungs.

We'll let you know when we find out something more.
