Old News

A week ago this past Thursday night, Isaiah started wheezing at bedtime. He still had it on Friday, so I ended up taking him to the Dr. on Friday. They diagnosed him with RAD (Reactive Airway Disease). They said that it is an infection that causes it. They gave him a breathing treatment at the Dr.'s office and then we had to go buy a breathing machine for him to keep at home. (He may not ever need it again, but it was cheaper for the insurance to purchase it than to rent it.) I took him back to the Dr. the next day for a follow up and then again this past Friday. All is well.

Ahh poor baby, I'm glad he is better. Daws had to use a breathing machine every time he got a cold. He had viral induced asthma, which means he only had problems breathing when he had a cold. He seems to have grown out of it now! I hope he doesn't need it anymore!
