Derek's a little wheezer these days.
He got sick this weekend.
It was just a little cold.
But on top of his seasonal allergies flaring up, it got the better of him.
Illness seems to hit him harder than other kids.
I hate watching my baby struggle to catch his breath.
Luckily I had some medicine left over from when he was hospitalized in spring of '09.
And in a moment of clarity, I remembered that I was a registered nurse BK,* so I was able to get him through the weekend without having to spend hours in the emergency room.
I got him an appointment today in pediatrics.
He was a' wheezin'.
And so he's on nebulizer treatments.
It's rough being a walking allergy sometimes.
But he's still pretty darn cute.
And apparently more than a little proud of his letter knowledge.
On a totally separate note, I have to share this conversation between Josh and Alex tonight.
Josh: Alex, you look like your daddy, you know.
Alex: No. I look like my Mommy!
Josh: What parts of you look like mommy?
Alex: We both have longer hair. And we have earrings. And my legs have a little bit of hair on them, and so do mommy's!
Can't a girl catch a break? It's practically winter already, even if the forecast calls for a high of 87 degrees on Wednesday.
