Since my last post...

...this has been my motto:

This Too Shall Pass print
When I wrote that post (the night before), I thought my son just had a cold.  The next morning, he was gasping for air and I went into complete panic mode.  Having asthma myself, I know the exact feeling of not being able to take a good breath and the fear that comes with it.  That is something I would never wish on anyone, but especially not on my baby.  :(  He is completely fine now, but we had a few very scary hours, a chest x-ray (which seemed like a form of torture and I wasn't even allowed to stay in the room with him), a diagnosis of pneumonia and bronchiolitis,  a breathing treatment regimen, antibiotics, and several rough nights of sleep.  Needless to say, nothing I had been stressing about (Christmas preparations) mattered at all.  All I wanted was for my baby boy to be better.  As I tried to sleep with him on my chest, I finally felt a sense of peace.  It did pass and I now have all that I could ever possibly need for Christmas.  :)

So glad he is doing better. Hang in there, that's the worst. Hopefully this will be his only time this winter! And now I have another poster shop to browse....thanks!

Oh you poor things!! I have tears reading this because I have been through something similar with my youngest daughter and it is the worst feeling a mother can ever experience. I am sorry you had to go through it. On a sort of brighter note, I also have asthma too and I think it helps knowing how it feels, when you have a child going through it. Some people don't take it as seriously when they haven't been through it themselves. I hope I am making sense. I know when we went through it, some people acted like it was no big deal and that I was overreacting and I wanted to throttle them. Sorry for my rambling! Glad everything is getting better.

I am so sorry that you had to go through that. I understand how that is, I am ok with getting sick myself but when Emma does I go crazy. It is so painful to see them suffer. I am glad he is better!
Group hug!

Wow. What a horrible experience (that he- and you guys- had to go through that), but at the same time a good reminder of what matters most. I am so glad to hear that he is doing better... just in time for the 'big day'!! :)
