poor Zach. this past week, Zach has caught a cold and along with it, a nasty cough. I noticed his wheezing had been ALOT worse lately and I was having to give him 4 nebulizer treatments a day!

I took him into Peds on Tuesday and the doc said his chest sounded like crap. (well, not HER exact words) And that it was obvious to her that his asthma is clearly not under control. She said he is in the Red Zone. Which, at this point, means we gotta bring in the big guns...steroids. I know, I know. I was hoping it wouldn't come to this either. But if that is what it takes to get my baby feeling comfortable again, so be it!

He is on Orapred now for 2 weeks, to start and the poor guy has to use an inhaler now with what they call a 'spacer'. this thing literally looks like a baby bottle!

it's been just over 3 days now and the cough is still nasty. the wheezing has not subsided YET. if these measures do not wipe out this junk in his lungs, it may turn out being an infection. (let's hope NOT)

Meanwhile, I have also caught this cold and I find myself very worn out and very grumpy! I am a ticking time bomb, just waiting to go off at any minute. Poor Jason has suffered most from it. I hate being sick. And worse, I hate seeing any of my babies sick!

For now, we'll just wait and see. And we'll all keep umbrella's close by just in case mommy blows up everywhere!
