Super Sick Evan

Mr.Evan is pretty sick these days. He had RSV when he was 3 months old and his lungs never fully recovered from it. For the past 6 months, he's had weeks where he's okay and weeks where he struggles taking a breath. He got really bad on Tuesday and finally they said he needs to take a nebulizer home and receive treatments daily.

Here's the drawer of all of Evan's medication. He receives one type of breathing treatment every 4 hours and another type of treatment twice a day for the next 3 months.

Here's the cow breathing machine - he hates it.

Not a happy boy but after his treatment he feels so much better. See below.

Paeton was really upset this week because Evan got to stay home with mommy and she had to go to school. We made a sign for her, took some pictures and e-mailed it to her classroom.

Evan also missed seeing his teachers so we made a sign for them and sent the pictures over.

We're hoping to go back to work and school on Monday. Until then, I have to say, I'm enjoying the extra time with my little man even if he's sick.

I promise he will get used to the mask. Drew absolutely hated his at first, but now he is pro and begs for it when he is coughing and struggling to breath. A bit jealous of the cool cow...ours is pretty plain jane..enjoy your time at home with the little man!
