Something I have to tell not only myself, but little Christopher as well.
I swear the poor kid can't catch a break....EVER!
Thomas has been sick....started with a cough and runny nose a few weeks back. He got over it, and Christopher remained cough/wheeze free! WHOOO HOOO maybe he is finally getting bigger and over coming his narrowed airway and asthma and predisposition to any sort of lung related problem.
Then Thomas came down with this horrific barky cough while we were in SF this past weekend. And in school on Monday his teacher called me and said he turned a lovely shade of red, and then a most beautiful shade of blue....to an awesome shade of purple. So off to the doc we sped. He was fine, at the tail end of a viral croup. Instructions ensued and off we went, he has been cough free for a day now.
And we thought we were getting lucky. And now Christopher....my poor little wheezing, coughing baby. All I can hope for now, is an ER free night! He sounds so horrible, I haven't heard him this bad since he was 4 months old and did a 4 day stay in the hospital.
So we do what we always do...more steroids, more breathing treatments, and pray!
So while we are telling him to Breathe Christopher, just Breathe....I have to tell myself that as well, as my sense of nervousness increases with each passing wheeze!
