First of all, I would like to say I'm thankful for my sons health! He has nothing life threatening and things could be so much worse... On that note though, I just wish I could figure out how to make him feel better all of the time. When I was pregnant I made sure to do everything I could to ensure a healthy baby, and thats what we got, a very healthy baby! At 4 months things seemed to start changing for him. He started getting countless ear infections, which turned into ear tubes (twice, once at 8 months and again at 16 months) croup (spelling), rotovirus, mouth sores, bronchitis (multiple times) strep throat, and now he battles something similar to asthma. It flares up really bad when we're around smoke, whether it's someone smoking or a campfire. The doctors never have told me what he has, just that he needs breathing treatments frequently. I feel like this kid has been introduced to more medicine than any 2 year old should. He sure is a trooper though, he takes his meds like a champ and doesn't mind his nebulizer treatments (most of the time). I'm tired of him having to deal with all that is thrown at him. I know one day things will be better and all I can do is go day to day. I often read blogs of people with children that are either very sick, injured, or not with us anymore and I can't help but count my blessing so once again, I have to say...
I'm thankful for all I have and that I have a little boy to take care of!
Well, I'm off to bed! Have a great day! We are BLESSED!
Our little trooper, getting a breathing treatment.. Isn't he so cute!
