Not again


Poor Jack is having another asthma attack that landed us in the er last night. I feel so bad for the little man, this really is the worst feeling in the world. I wish that I could tell him that it will be alright and not to be scared, and that this asthma thing will end soon. But I can't because it won't. We are giving him breathing treatments every2-3 hours, an oral and an inhaled steroid. When he breathing gets shallow he panics and starts to cry and when he crys it gets worse. It is this vicious cycle of not being able to get in enough air. Here is a picture of Jack playing with my cellphone. I guess that he is never too sick to chat on the phone!

Oh that sounds so scary! And I bet the seasonal allergies make it that much worse! Poor guy!
He's in my prayers!

Poor baby boy! I know exactly how you are feeling mama! Kyler's started when he was 5 months old (he is almost 3)and we still do breathers every day!

If it makes you feel better, it is getting better. I think he FINALLY starting to outgrow it. Hope that gives you some hope!

Stupid Asthma!!

I feel so badly for him and for you! So being I totally understand as I live with adult asthma, I will be praying and believing he will just grow out of it!! And soon! :) Until then praying for God to bring you peace during his asthma attacks.

Aw, poor little dude! I have asthma too and it royally sucks. Hopefully as he gets older, it will be able to be better controlled and the ER visits won't be such a big fixture in his treatment.

He is the cutest little guy! Some kids grow out of asthma. I did. I haven't had an asthma attack in about 20 years. Although I do have apnea. I wonder if the two are related though?

Your baby boys are just gorgeous!
