...And the Hits Just Keep Coming....

Well, I thought that perhaps once I got back from vacation, I would be able to post more regularly. I had hoped so, actually, as I have discovered that I really enjoy writing these posts and wish I had more time to spend on them.
Unfortunately, this has not been the case. Since I returned, my youngest daughter has been fairly ill from her asthma. Seems that the ungodly-hot weather, combined with sitting in a bone-chillingly cold movie theater to watch 'The Smurfs', then back into the heat, caused her asthmatic little lungs to seized up a bit. So it's been breathing treatments every 2 hours, day and night, night and day.
If one is unfamiliar with the joys of trying to get a rowdy 6-year-old girl to sit still long enough to breath in a few milliliters of albuterol (while said albuterol is acting on their system in a manner roughly akin to low-grade meth), then one should consider themselves lucky.
But, as in all things, I try to find the brighter side. Which, in this case, is further instructing my child to be as wonderfully weird as her father; namely getting her to quote "Lord of the Flies"-- "Sucks to your ass-mar."

  4. Bro, serious time --> there is some allergen in your house or your environment that is causing your daughter's asthmatic condition.

    I'd put a hundred on you having a pet of some sort. Pets are awesome, but they are often the source of allergens. I spent 6 years of my life being extremely ill, rushing to the ER for adrenaline shots, catastrophic asthma. Turns out it was my dog, bro, my favorite living thing on the planet... My daughter wants a pet REAL bad, but she is allergic, and I am allergic, and I just can't live like that anymore. Find the allergen and save her life. Soaps and other sources of artificial fragrances are another common source. Also, don't trust your doctor. And do not give your kids steriods in any form.

    Honest talk your you.

    Followed.
