The Equation

When your air looks like this

And your child has this

And you have tried this


And it's 11:30 PM on a Saturday night

You end up here

A little touch of croup added for good measure.

All is well. Home and in bed by 2:00 a.m. Medication on board. Abe was a trooper. Happy, in fact, to have his sojourn at the E.R.

Glad he's ok. Asthma can be really scary...

He was just happy to have all that attention for himself, eh? Stinker.

I'd really rather live in CA than in farm country MN... but I am thankful for our clear air! Poor thing... hope he's feeling better.

Oh my. I am glad all is well. ER visits are never fun.

I think our youngest son has a touch of asthma. He frequently gets the croup, and it goes from bad to worse rather quick. He has never been diagnosed with it, and his activity level is very high....swim team etc, and he doesn't have problems at all with it...it is just the frequent night onset croup that has us wondering.

Last summer was really bad, this winter and summer have been mild and so far so good...no croup for him yet.

Kate has reactive asthma and is reacting a bit to our smoke too. She has never gotten to the point of having a really difficult time breathing, just tight chest and lots and lots and lots of coughing! It's amazing what a little puff of that inhaler can do. Glad to know he's feeling better. See - sometimes I do more than lurk!
