Please not again

I'm pretty worried, and as y'all know it helps to blog about stuff.  SO here we go.
Some of you may remember when Pie was really sick... he was hospitalized and they discovered two lung abscesses. 
Well he's been coughing a lot again.  Colds do happen so I try not to jump to conclusions right away, but he did go to the doc and get a chest x-ray.  Doc called and said they couldn't see anything from the x-ray and were putting in a request for a CT scan.
Then Pie seemed to be taking a turn for the worse so his dad & I ganged up on him and basically bullied him (nagged him) into going back to the doc.
Turns out there WAS something on that first x-ray and they took a second one to compare size, shape, etc.  Also gave him some pretty heavy duty antibiotics.  Still waiting for the CT scan appointment.
Doc said to give the drugs time to work, and if toward the end of the script he wasn't feeling better we'll have to admit him to the hospital.
So we're hoping and praying that the pills work, of course I want him to get better but I'd also like for him to be able to avoid the hospital if at all possible!

  6. Prayers coming your way.
    Stick to your guns on making sure he gets the care he should... if Pie is anything like my guy, he avoids medical things like the plague. It takes more than a gentle nudge.

  10. Fingers crossed! It wasn't too long ago I dealt with contagious pneumonia. So, Pie has my deepest sympathies. Did they do a culture to MAKE SURE they put him on the RIGHT antibiotics? Because once you start a round of antibiotics, they can't culture later and it's like playing Russian Roulette to find the right ones.
