Taking my 2 yr old to the doctor for a cough

Yep, I guess I've turned into one of "those" parents who runs their kid to the doctor for a cough. I'm so nervous that the doctor is going to say "Oh it's nothing, just a summer cold" and I"m going to look like an over-protective, hypochondriac parent.

He started with a cough about 4 days ago.. just a normal cough. Then on Wednesday he threw up twice.

Wednesday night the cough got worse and he woke up in the middle of the night coughing this nasty sounding, rattling cough.

Yesterday morning he seemed ok, but the started coughing in the afternoon and for the rest of the evening.

Called the pediatrician's office right before five, and thankfully they were still there.. and they were able to give me an appointment for 9am.

DH called his shop foreman to explain what was going on (we're a one car family) and Tony was really awesome and told DH that he understood and to just come in after DS3's appointment.

DS3 woke up in a coughing fit this morning too.

He's not coughing now, it seems to be worse first thing in the morning, fine in the afternoon, then coughing in the evening and middle of the night.

I don't normally take my kids to the doctor for cold symptoms.. but it's bothering me that this seems to be getting worse.

He's also not playing with as much enthusiasm as is normal for him and his eyes always "look tired" if you know what I mean.

So please tell me that I'm not being silly for taking him in for just a cough? He's my 3rd, you'd think I'd have a grip on this kind of stuff by now. LOL

God bless!
