But not this time, buddy! I know, this picture is horrible! It is Ellie coughing or pulling for breath or something that is just not cool! Daddy is holding the nebulizer trying to get her some relief! It reminds me so much of our childhood. My Daddy was the great physician! He seemed to always be the one tending to us when we were sick. Mom got homework, supper, bathtime, etc. But dad... he was our caretaker when we were sick!
All of this came from her going outside and riding her four wheeler. And you should just SEE what comes about when she runs or plays in Maddi's new jumper!
This evening we ate at their house. Ellie came in and told us she was only going to watch Maddi jump, because she knew she wouldn't be able to stop coughing. We told her that was very responsible.
I think doing your own breathing treatments when you are three years old is pretty responsible too!
My big girl. What would I do without her?! She is a trooper, that is for sho!
She can run and go and move it with the best of them. But as the title implies, even the best go down sometime! And when I say goes down, I mean, the coughing spell is something that actually worries me! She can't seem to get it to settle down. I suppose it is the bronchospasms! Horrible!
I even contacted ol' birthdad (who I've not had much contact with) to see just the extent of asthma on his side of the family. It seems no one really has it as adults. Just the basic breathing treatments as kids. So hopefully, this will pass.
