Medications. Ugh.

Every morning before brushing teeth, we give Riley his medicine. Usually, it's his "chewy pill", a nasal spray, and an inhaler. Those are to help with his allergies and things like that. I suppose they help, but in reality, I have no idea what they're for. We just had a well visit and we're hoping that the doctor will tell us he doesn't need some or all of them any more.

Anyway, these days, with his sinus infection, we've had to add an antibiotic on top of everything. Also, to keep him as sickness-free as possible, we've started giving him vitamins to try to stave off any bad germs. So, basically, before Riley's started his day, he's taken 5 medications.

It's kind of depressing. Our little dude should be healthy! He shouldn't need to take meds. I guess the good news is he doesn't question it; it's part of his routine and he'll remind us if he doesn't get the medicine. Ideally, of course, he's on no medicines. Hopefully we're able to take him off them now, or as a result of the surgery. Right now, I don't know if the issues he has are because of the CM or what.
