A scary day...

ACE, you brought back lots of scary memories for us yesterday baby boy. When you woke up I could tell that you did not feel good but things quickly got worse. Out of no where you started breathing so hard and I could tell that something was not right. It was all so familiar to me because of what we went through with Caleb when he was a baby. You were trying so hard to breathe but could not get much air. I rushed you to the Dr. and he said that you had bronchiolitis. He gave you a breathing treatment and sent us home with a nebulizer so we could continue to give you the treatments every four hours but we had to give them to you more like every twenty minutes. Your Doctor said that if you did not get better in an hour we needed to take you to the hospital.

There is nothing worse or more stressful than watching your child doing everything that he can to catch a breath. You were such a sat there like a big boy and let us put that mask on you to help you breathe. Daddy and I decided to try whatever we could to keep you home instead of the hospital because we remember how traumatic that experience was for Caleb and did not want you to have to go through that too. We had vaporizers in every room, water boiling at all times, vicks rubbed all over you and luckily it worked! Although, we did not get you to sleep until 2:00am because the medicine had you so wired, but once you fell asleep you were breathing much better.

I just want you to know that you have the best Daddy in the world! He slept in your floor next to your crib all night to make sure you would be okay. He was so concerned that you would need us in the night and we would not be able to hear you.

You woke up this morning still not sounding "good" but you were so much better! As the day went on you were wrestling with your brother and climbing on furniture so we new that we had our Ace back and we were so happy.

My world crashed yesterday baby when I could not help you. Mommy and Daddy love you so much and we are so happy that you are feeling better!
