Sure enough, the croupy cough started which progressed to wheezing yesterday. The short story is that we took Ella to the ER and they pretty much concluded she is either asthmatic or has reactive airway disease. What does this mean? It means when my kid gets sick, it will go straight to those little lungs and she will wheeze and need breathing treatments and steroids. How does this affect you? It means if I see you dropping off a sick kid in the church nursery, I will very politely have to say something to you.
As a result, Ella is now on her second day of oral steroids...which means she has turned into "evil child". I don't blame her. I know she can't help it. I know what it feels like when you are on steroids. Plus, she can't sleep because she is constantly coughing. Throw on top of that every 4 hour breathing treatments where she kicks, screams, etc...well, let's just say I need a time out and some Tylenol.
Ok, so it breaks my heart that you are sick. But can you please hurry up and get well?...mommy is getting gray hair after this week.
