So a blog is to remember times in your life - the good and the bad. This is one of the not so good moments. Cole is so flared up from cedar that he has been constantly congested and with a cough for several weeks now. Just when we thought it was clearing up, cedar would spike off the charts again. Poor BABY. I took him to the doctor on Friday and he told me that little kids don't know how to get rid of the "junk" like we do as adults. They don't blow their noses very well, when they cough something up...they don't spit it out (yes I know that is gross, but a reality), so sometimes they just need a little help to break up all of the mucus...so there starts the breathing treatments.
During his doctor's visit, they had us try one and we both cried for about 15 minutes as I did a SAMA Containment on my own child. We were both hysterical and sweating by the end of it. But it helped him so much. Dan and I have been taking turns giving them to him this weekend and now he is a PRO...as long as Toy Story is on, he only lets out a cry when we first put the mask on his little face. He already sounds so much better and we only have one more day to go before we will only use it "as needed".
This whole Parenthood thing is tough sometimes :)
