A Nebulizer...so that when Christopher decides to struggle for breaths, we can give him our own breathing treatments right from the comfort of our own home and not have to rush to the hospital. So let's hope this will save us some money, and ER trips in the long run!! He put off any shots he was to receive today, which is fine by me....if I knew then what I know now....I would have opted to postpone shots for a little while....but that's for another post at another time!
So now after we are finished with his prednisone he will start his breathing treatments a few times a day and as needed! After his 1st birthday he wants him to go back to his specialist for another scope of his throat. They say he will "grow out" of this, but in reality I think he will always be susceptible to lung and throat issues.
All this medication and breathing treatments, nebulizers, steroids and inhalers....jumping at any sound of a cough or a gasp in the middle of the night, any time he struggles for breath sitting and playing, being aware of the rise and fall of his chest, any wheeze or croupy cough....I guess this is our life. I don't think I will ever be able to just dismiss it and not be worried! Let's hope he will "grow out" of it, and if he doesn't....that's okay, I still love him to death!
