Grayson Goes Snorkeling

Our sweet little boy was up 1,000 times last night with breathing problems. We pulled out the humidifier... still not breathing great... opened the freezer, let him soak in the cool moist air... didn't work. This morning when he was STILL having problems we decided to take him to the Dr. which means Urgent Care. Out in the Twilight Zone, which is where we live, the doctor offices only schedule appointments a month head of time. For example a few weeks ago Justin and I were sick and were not getting better so we called the dr.'s office. I asked the nurse if we can come in the morning or the afternoon.

Nurse: Oh, we don't have any openings today, but we can get you in May 7th.
Me: Oh, okay I'll just stop being sick now and then reschedule to be sick in one month!
Nurse: Okay so you want to schedule it then?
Me: Are you kidding me! How do sick people get better?
Nurse: Well that's what Urgent Care is for.
Me: Ummm... I thought that was for people without insurance on the weekends...

Anyway before I took Grayson to U.C. Justin gave him a blessing.

While in U.C. the Pediatrician called me back saying they wanted to see Grayson right away! So we went and....


he got a breathing treatment! Immediately following his breathing was SO much better. So now we have a nebulizer that he snorkels on every 4 hours. Sad that he seems to have asthma, but so glad to have medication for it.



Meanwhile look who found the formula!!! Those little stinkers dumped a can of formula on the kitchen floor and proceeded to dance in it until I realized what was happening!

Seriously... play with your toys! Isn't that what they're for?

It must be croup season...we thought that we were going to have to take Camden in two weeks ago because he woke up with it. And of course screaming and freaking out (I would be too if I couldn't breathe) which made it worse. It was 1am and the "tornado storm" was supposed to hit between 3-4am. I told Roger,"Give him a blessing a make sure it works!"

Those nebulizers are so cute! poor Grayson, too young to be having asthma... he could be setting a fashion statement.. lol
OH my kids have done the same thing... what the heck.. seriously play with your own toys... formula is freaking expensive!

Benjamin has had a nebulizer since he was 4 months old. We had to use it this winter, but before that he didn't use it for 2 years. My girls like to play with the tiolet paper and unroll the who;e thing. I'd rather them get into the tiolet paper it's cheaper.

I would be so stinking mad if the formula was dropped on the floor! It's expensive! ANyway, sad about the asthma, but glad the breathing treatments are working. Brandon's whole family has asthma - especially his sister. Everything turns out well with modern medicine though! And seriously, a MONTH to get in to see a Dr??

Your poor little guy. That would break my heart but thank goodness we live in a time with good medicine to help him out. I laughed out loud with Becky's comments about making sure it, the blessing, works.

The "formula dancing" reminds me of the time Josh decided to shake a full box of baking soda all over my pantry - we are still pulling out things that are covered with a white powder residue. I've decided that Josh does this stuff when he knows I am busy with other things - I think it is an attention getter! Just like they totally don't care where you are or what you are doing until you are on the phone or your visiting teachers come and you are trying to have a conversation!

Toys are for the unimaginative, I guess. Asthma stinks, good thing you caught it early. LOVE those offices that can't see their own patients when they are needed. What do they do with the time? Only do physicals? I don't get it, but that's the way it is up here. Our ped. in Bako is good though. He lets you come in when you need to- I wish I could be one of his patients.
