Breathing Treatments

A couple weeks ago little Daxton got his first cold.  I'm pretty sure it's from all the company in town visiting and being out all day on fun adventures.  A deep cough started to develop after a few days and started to settle in his lungs.  We were happy to hear from the doctor that it wasn't anything serious like RSV, but the doctor wanted us to start on breathing treatments.  The medicine came in a liquid form that we would put in a nebulizer (a pump that would convert the liquid into gas.)  Then we would place the pump close to his mouth until the gas ran out.  This allowed Daxton to get his medicine through the vapor, breathing it in and causing his throat to stop contracting.  He was then able to cough out the congestion from his illness.  We have been having to do this for over a week now, every 3-4 hours.  Obviously, he is not a big fan of the treatments and we have to basically wrestle with him in order to sit still long enough to breathe in the full treatment.  A lot of bribery may have been involved...
Hopefully our poor little guy will get feeling better soon.
We love you, sicky.
