i got some answers regarding little P's breathing issues that seem to come and go.

Last night was another rough night. Someone was telling me that sleep deprivation is used as a form of torture...well last night Dave and I were a little tortured, okay, maybe I'm exaggerating. But at the time it felt like it! This morning I had it. I got in the car and went to urgent care when I got there they told me they don't accept his insurance (even though I called before I left) this time I have throw up all over me, I am trying to get him in the car and people are staring...did I mention that I am crying too? I am sure this was a sight. I drive around the ER at Sacred Heart 3 times trying to decide if I should go in or wait. I ended up calling Ps doctors office and they told me to come in in an hour. Perfect, time to go take a shower and give P a bath and pull myself together. This is what I found out. Preston does have reflux, reflux can include wheezing and respiratory problems, and gets worse with colds-which as you all know can be pretty frequent with little ones. Unfortunately in the past whenever I would take him to the doctor he seemed fine, but today he was really struggling to get a good breath and they could see what I was talking about-hallelujah! I am not crazy! So, this morning he received 2 nebulizer treatments, a cortisone shot and a prescription that will hopefully get him feeling better. So now I know what's going on, and the doctors know what's going time they will send us home with a nebulizer. He is feeling much better by the way-he is still sick, but he is breathing easy!


  1. I am so sorry you and especially little P had to go thru all of that! Maybe the dr. office will erase that little check mark by your name now!

  2. poor p. our little buddy needs to feel better soon because jess keeps asking to go on a walk with him. ;)

    i pray for a healing hand on his little body.

  3. Oh my. I'm glad you were able to figure out what is up with P! I'm sorry that it was a long and drawn out process though. Definitely not fun! Hopefully he is doing better after a few days w/treatment???
