Charlie is finally feeling better, thanks to motrin, tylenol, rooibos tea, some kind of steroid they gave him at the hospital, and an *HOUR LONG* nebulized albuterol treatment.  This means that mommy and daddy each spent about half an hour inhaling albuterol while trying to keep the little schnozzle pointed at the face of a squirmy baby (who will not wear a mask; masks are for chewing on! Nom nom nom!)  My airways feel great but my heart is a little racy.  Probably my imagination, since I take albuterol via inhaler pretty often myself..anyway, we're home now, and he does not have pneumonia (he has a viral thing*, they think, that caused a reactive-airway flareup), and he's not barfing on me, at the moment anyway.  So the weekend is a win, except for the parts of it that were supposed to involve getting stuff accomplished. 

*a no-fault viral thing, dear ones.

Poor little pumpkin.

Albuterol, one of the miracle drugs that lets me survive as a moving object. And my two sons. So far my daughter hasn't shown any symptoms.

I'm glad the drugs are working and he's feeling better. Poor little guy.

Kids are Nature's way of making sure you don't miss a single virus or bacteria floating around. When our son was little, he used to get repeated bouts of Strep throat (until we got the tonsils removed) and that was always signalled by a sudden onset of vomiting, then fever. It could happen so suddenly he'd pick out something from the menu, and before it was served, he'd be in the bathroom and we'd have to get our stuff to go. Good times. ;-)

Glad to hear the happy (or at least non-wheezy, non-febrile, non-barfy) ending. All good wishes.
