Where I’ve been…

I’ve been absent from the blogging world for the past week and I just wanted to fill you all in. My little guy had what we thought was a cold early last week. I ended up getting the flu on top of us having a fussy, sick baby boy. You all know it’s rough being sick and taking care of a sick little one but we’ve made it through the roughest part, I think. I hope. LA’s cough kept getting worse and he started wheezing. We ended up taking him to the ER over the weekend and found out he had bronchiolitis. He had to have a breathing treatment and it seemed to help the wheezing and they released him. The very next morning he was wheezing again. I called the doctor and they told me to bring him in. We went in and the doctor confirmed the bronchiolitis diagnosis and prescribed a breathing machine and instructed us to give him breathing treatments every 6 hours for 48 hours and then just as needed. Today he’s still a bit fussy and somewhat wheezy, but not constant.

When we were at the ER they asked us if asthma ran in our families. We said no, but the more I thought about it, I realized my grandfather had asthma. When we went to the doctor I asked him if asthma was something we should be concerned about and he replied, “Any time a child this age develops bronchiolitis there is a concern that asthma will develop. It is just something we will have to watch.” Ok, now do I have to tell you how much this scares me? I just pray to God that my sweet little baby boy doesn’t develop asthma. As moms we want our children’s lives to be so easy and perfect and I know asthma isn’t the end of the world, but I don’t want him to have to deal with that challenge. Please pray for my little guy!

So, I’m sorry I’ve been gone from blogging for a bit, but I had to take care of my priority, and that’s my little guy! Thanks for understanding! Hope all is well with all of you!

Ammonia stink issues? 🙁
