Today I got Jackson out of school early and we headed to the doctor to get his cough looked at.  The doctor came in the room, listened to him and immediately said he had to have a breathing treatment right then.  I was a bit shocked.  Jackson is not my wheezer.  In fact, Jackson has never had to do any type of breathing treatment.  He hasn't been complaining about his lungs bothering him and has still been pretty active.  I felt terrible!  He has had this cough for about 3-4 weeks now but hasn't really complained too much.  We were just getting tired of listening to it at night and worried it would become an issue at school.  When Tyler is wheezing you can tell he is in distress.  He tells us his lungs are hurting him and takes it easy.  Jackson hasn't really said anything.  He was excited about getting to do a breathing treatment because he has watched Tyler do them for years and apparently thought they were cool.  Tonight when he was sitting on the couch while the little ones played he decided it wasn't so cool.  In fact he complained a lot.  It is amazing that for 2.5 years we did this with Tyler every day...a lot of times 2 times a day.  The movers put our other nebulizer into storage (where it wasn't supposed to go!) so we had to go buy another one today.  By the time we got home we were all worn out!
The weather is still beautiful here.  It warmed up a bit into the low 90s but it still feels so good compared to the 100s.  The kids have enjoyed getting to spend the evenings outside again.
I am tired and not feeling well so I have dosed up with NyQuill and plan on sleeping good tonight!
Hope you are all having a wonderful week!
