A new record!

We made it one whole week with no need to neb in the middle of the night. However, the streak was broken last night.

Stupid me…I had gotten complacent. I didn’t move the upstairs neb machine back into her room, and I didn’t have meds in her room, ready…so, it wasn’t an easy “get up and do it in my sleep” kind of thing. I had to get the machine…and oops, I took that cup to our friends house, because it was clean, and the other one was waiting for the dishwasher…and crud, the meds are down stairs. So, by the time I was done with the treatment, I was WIDE awake.

On a “normal childhood” note…It’s SKI WEEK!!!! The girls and I are heading to my parents…A will go skiing with Grampy tomorrow…and we’ll head home. M will be spending the week with Grammy and Grampy in the mountains…and she’ll get some skiing in with them. She’s healthy-ish…so it should be a good trip. If nothing else, the extra week off of school will help her out. She’s finally over the sinus infection, and mostly clear. It should be an easy week for my parents. I wasn’t diagnosed with asthma until I was in high school, and it wasn’t as scary as M’s…but they really do well with it. Once I explained that the maintenance puffers are for every day, not just if you think she needs them. They are fabulous with med compliance, and aren’t scared to keep her.

Hopefully, I’ll have some pictures of them skiing to post next week.
