Scott and Brandon came home a little after 3. What a long day at the ER! I was worried sick and already planning on canceling the rest of our week. (work, activities, get togethers, everything)They said it seems as though he has asthma - like his Daddy. He may grow out of it. We were hoping he didn't have asthma, but thought he might since being sick seems to always trigger breathing problems for him. He is on a steroid and has his own little inhaler for when we are out - then we are to use the nebulizer at home. I was wondering how a toddler would use an inhaler? They make a cool little device called an OptiChamber. We put the inhaler in one end, the other end has a little mask to put up to Brandon's mouth and when we push the medicine out of the inhaler, he just has to take a least 6 breathes to make sure he has all the medicine. I will keep this in the diaper bag. Hopefully, brandon will be better in a couple days.
