It turns out HJ and I are still not back to normal.  I now have a cold, ugh.

And my poor baby boy has bronchitis :(.  The doctor prescribed a nebulizer.  Not fun.  Have you ever tried getting a wiggly little 15 month old to sit still for 10 minutes at a time for a medical treatment?  Not an easy task.  The nebulizer is a machine that you put the antibiotic in and then it is turned into vapor and blows into the face/mouth of the wiggly 15 month old.  So I have to hold him and the machine, while air puffs into his face.  Not only that, but the antibiotic causes a crazy level of hyperness.  HJ literally bounces after the treatment. 

Every 4 hours the treatment is needed.  Every 4 hours I have to pin my little baby into my lap and have air blown into his face for 10 minutes, while he wiggles, screams, kicks and throws punches.  For the next 10 days.

One Thought on “Under the Weather

    I have totally been there! We are on our second round of nebulizer treatments for C. Luckily, he is amazed by the mist and tries to eat at it while he breathes it in. He also gets “high” from the albuterol treatments and it is funny to see him go into hyper-actvity mode. Huge difference between 15 months and 8 months though. C hasn’t figured out how to walk or run!

    Good luck… 10 days seems like a long time!
