Milk and Cookie Disease

I am a true believer that the answers will find you when you’re ready for them. Dr. Wei is a Pediatric ENT at the University of Kansas Hospital. She was the surgeon that removed Millie’s tonsils and adenoids 3 years ago. I had honestly forgotten about Dr. Wei except for a quick news story about her new book on the Milk & Cookies Disease — I meant to do some research on the book, but got busy.

While waiting in the carpool line last week I told a friend about Posey’s possible Asthma when he told me his son was also recently diagnosed. His wife — my good friend — emailed me today wondering if I had heard about Milk & Cookies when it all came rushing back!

HUGE A-HA MOMENT! (Where’s Oprah when you need her?) I am not sure Posey’s problem is this, but the allergist did say we’d confirm asthma if the asthma meds worked — and so far, they aren’t. The other possibility for her breathing problems is reflux. And that could relate back to this. I will be doing more research — will try to get ahold of this book — and maybe even talk with Dr. Wei and get back to you.

Does any of this resonate with you? Do your children have similar issues? Has anyone tried something similar?

    Have you looked into Vocal cord dysfunction? It mimics asthma but is caused by the vocal cords twitching. Its more common that people think. For more information look on National Jewish Hospital Website. I had it for a few years alongside asthma, went from 3 admissions to ER a week down to a admission a month for asthma
