Rach - excellent news about the pump being put away!! B00bie feeds 100% - woohooo!!! You must feel you have so much time to spare now!
Doc was great and said often with cases like Spencer where it is a viral cold which starts the asthma, it is times like spring and autumn where they get worse as they are the times for lots of bugs to be around. I know that asthma, eczema and hayfever are all related, so that would fit into that timeframe too.
We are going to decrease the puffer to one puff twice a day in 2 weeks, and then at Christmas stop and see how he responds. If all is well, then we wait until autumn and see if he flares up again.
Interesting and logical the doc saying that asthma not being controlled can affect development due to decreased oxygen in the blood etc etc. Hopefully the preventer will be enough. The aim is to not need ventolin at all.
S woke SO whimpery and unhappy and sad from his nap yesterday. We ended up putting him down for his bed at 6pm (usually 7) and he slept right through. He was obviously in pain so had given him drugs. Poor little guy had a bit of gunk out of his ear this morning, but in a fantastic mood now, so much better. He must have had something going on with his ear, but man, it comes on quickly. We were at the doctor's on Monday and he looked in S's ears and no problems there.
Well - today is the day that DH's cousin and one of my friend's predicted we will be birthing. Nothing happened yet and no real niggles either. If it does happen today, I'm hoping it will wait until AFTER I get my laksa fix for lunch today. DH and I attempted to get it on Sunday and found the place we go to had stopped opening on Sundays, in July! OMG - I was devo!!! DH has laughed that it will be funny if I put down the spoon from the laksa and my waters break! HA!
