Well, after several months or runny noses and coughing, and no answers, I finally have some.  I took Emma to our ENT last week and explained to him our problems... Runny nose and cough constantly since August, not resting at night because she coughs constantly, no help from our pediatrician, etc...

After hearing me out and checking Emma out thoroughly, he suggested that we take her adenoids out.  He said that they were extremely large and what was giving her trouble.  He seems to think that we will see an almost immediate improvement from this surgery... Thank goodness!

We continued talking about the persistent cough and he concluded that she has asthma.  I was a little taken aback because I have asked our pediatrician this many, many times and she dismissed my concerns.  She told me that Emma would get better on her own and didn't need any type of medication.

Since her appointment, and being placed on Singulair and Nasonex, Emma has made huge improvements!  It is amazing the difference!  So much so that my husband actually asked if I felt she still needed surgery to remove her adenoids.  And, while I hate to put her through surgery, I still feel that it is in her best interest to go ahead with the surgery.

So, please say a prayer for Emma on Friday that her surgery goes well... and that she will finally be completely WELL for a change!
