Spring days

Winter is great on Avery's little lungs but those spring blossoms take quite a toll on her. After picking her up on Friday from school for wheezing and listening to her cough and wheeze all weekend (and lot's of breathing treatments) we headed to the allergist on Monday.

They always get a plan right into place and get her on the right track. I have to sit and take notes during the visit to make sure i get everything straight, when to do what and so on...

Her small airways (these are details for me down the road) were at 62% as opposed to 79% in the fall so the dr said she appeared better than what she sounded like inside!

peakflows, weekly allergy shots, claritan, zyrtec, hydroxyzine, asmanex, prednisone, singulair, pataday, protopic, xopenex inhaler, albuterol for her nebulizer...these are the things that are making her spring days tolerable...making it so that she is able to go outside and play.

Her eczema had (almost) completely gone away over the winter. I was getting high hopes that this might be it for her. It has come back some but not nearly as bad as she used to have it so far. We will see what the next couple of months brings.

This was at the allergist on Monday. They gave her a breathing treatment while they were getting all of her medicines and prescriptions together...

Poor little thing! What a bummer that she (and you) has to deal with that.

So Sorry. What a pain. I would have a love/hate relationship with spring, too.
