Her bumps are getting bigger which I hope means they are in the healing phase. The doctor said they will blister and then go away (I think). We are hoping for a quick recovery!

My poor little sweetie's asthma started bothering her on the car ride home and her loser mom forgot to bring her breathing medicine...ugg! She hasn't had an attack in a long time and I just didn't think about bringing it on our trip...that won't happen again! I am so thankful she was feeling much better after her treatment. Does anyone know at what age doctors prescribe the hand held inhalers for kids?

Look who else is home!!!!!! We missed our little baby sooooooo much! We are so thankful to the wonderful couple who took such good care of him while we were gone. I know that he had a good time because he was in such a GREAT mood when we picked him up :o) As soon as I got him in the car, the girls went crazy! They started singing to him and he just smiled and "talked" all the way home. He had a lot to tell us about the last few days :o) I just LOVE this sweet little guy!

Oh! You have beautiful pink & purple Azaleas! They are blooming around here too like crazy! Hand Held Inhalers came around age 5. When they have a little more control to hold their breath while you press the inhaler button then can 'suck in' quickly...then they have to hold their breath while you count to 10 before they can breathe out....your dr. may let you have one earlier if she's really good with following directions....this brings back memories. My boys had those & their nose/mouth piece was a duck. So, we always referred to our meds inhaler as "the duck"! Luckily, we have survived on Singulair alone for the past year and 1/2...it has been so nice. The last time we were in the ER with asthma was when we took a trip to Tennessee and they were crop dusting! ICK! Bad chemicals! Hope she's doing better!

Glad you made it home safely! WB had an inhaler at about 3. He had an extension tube...he/I held the tube to his mouth/nose and I squirted the inhaler in the tube and he would just breath normally. It was pretty easy...he did this for about 2 years, then 2 years on Singulair/Zyrtec, and then he outgrew his issues by about 8. Poor little LeLe.

I have forgotten the inhaler as well. Don't punish yourself too much. It happens. I saw that car load of stuff you took to TX. The flowers are beautiful. Jonah was so happy to see you - obviously, look at that precious smile. Glad you are home. Let's get together soon.

YEA! Vacations are fun, but it's always so nice to get home, especially when you have a sweetie like Jonah waiting for you! :o)

Ben has asthma too. I think he got an inhaler around 3yrs, but he also had a spacer tube. Works great for the little ones!

both of my girls age 2 and 5 have been prescribed inhalers when they've been sick. You just have to get the air chamber for the smaller ones. I would call and ask your doctor. =)
