- My parents came to visit this past weekend....prior to them coming I was getting ready for them to come, while they were here I was hanging out with them every second I could, and since they left I have felt overwhelmed by the hundreds of pictures I took to help me document the weekend. (Check back for that post once I have calmed down and narrowed down the selection!)
- Working. Documenting. Blah.
- I've been worried about and praying for Brody's Uncle Shane and Aunt Jessi.
- Brody has me worried. He has had a cough for over a month now (for which he was given an inhaler to use as needed). As of yesterday afternoon his cough became persistent, coughing every 5-10 seconds. Last night his breathing became labored, he was wheezing, and I was hearing a crackling noise as he expired. He couldn't stop coughing, so he didn't get much sleep...and neither did we. I took him to the doctor this morning and he gave him a (costly) cocktail of drugs to help determine if it is allergies or asthma. We should have a better idea by the middle of next week.
Update: I took Brody back to the doctor the following week and his lungs were clear, per Dr. Reisman. He told us that since he has been in to see him a few times for wheezing and because he reacted so "beautifully" to the cocktail of drugs, he suspects Brody has asthma (though he will not commit to that diagnosis yet). We are to continue 3 of the 4 medications (2 of which we can discontinue in a couple weeks) and see him again in June for a more final diagnosis. We are praying for God's healing, but understand we are so blessed to have an otherwise healthy boy. Being in the pediatrics field has helped me keep some perspective on all this.
