{embracing} a nebulizer?!

Unfortunately this week for embracing the camera, we're also embracing sickness at our house :( Poor Lincoln has been battling a double ear infection, bronchitis and now pneumonia for the past 5+ days now and finally seems to be on the mend. We've gotten to be best buddies with his new nebulizer and doing breathing treatments now every 4 hours. It's so hard for an active 20 month old to sit still for 10 minutes for a breathing treatment but he's gotten better. I let him watch cartoons while we do it and that seems to keep him still for the most part (yes, I know I win "mother of the year" with that one).

During one of his breathing treatments


I hate it when he's sick.
He does seem to be feeling better this morning so we'll see what the doctor has to say when we go!  Hopefully all good news and NO MORE SHOTS! 

Don't forget to enter the GIVEAWAY going on!!

  2. I'm glad he's doing better. Sorry he has been so sick this winter, but glad it wasn't last year when he was so tiny. Keep us updated!

    And, Calla watches TV (Praise Baby) every day for her breathing treatments too--and she should not be watching ANY TV at her age. You are being a good mommy for making sure he is getting the treatment, right (even if that means TV)?

    Hope his appointment goes well.

  10. We are hooked up to the nebulizer twice a day, every day, and we couldn't do it without You Tube videos. Hope your little man is on the mend soon.

  11. I don't think watching cartoons while getting a neb treatment is bad. Then again, I'm the mom who let my kid have pop to try to get him to take his oral steroids!! You do what you have to do with sick kids, rules fly out the window. Then you start afresh when they are all healed up.

    Hope Linc gets to feeling all better soon!!

  13. I hope he feels better soon! Nothing wrong with letting him watch cartoons while not feeling well. Thats the only thing that gets maddux through being sick... laying around watching mickey mouse playhouse. :)
