Nebuliz-her



The doctor originally prescribed three days of breathing treaments, three times a day. After the first night's treatment, Elizabeth went to bed and slept about an hour. Then she was awake and WIRED! She was awake for almost seven hours -- playing and laughing, but screaming if we tried to get her to sleep. I called the doctor first thing this morning and he said if she wasn't wheezing at bedtime to cut out that treatment and just do two a day. That's what we've done. today..so far, so good (she's asleep for now.) She does not enjoy the treatments, but this afternoon's went better with John holding her and the mask and me being silly and entertaining her. We're almost done -- just two more treatments tomorrow and as long as her fever stays away (which is has today!), then she'll wean off of the treatments Monday and Tuesday.
