Update On Joel!

I had to take Joel to the ER Christmas night because he had been sick since Monday with what started out just like his asthma but kept getting worse. We were up 2 nights in a row with him breathing horribly. We did the nebulizer 2 times through the night and kept treating it like it was his asthma. He had no voice what so ever for 3 days.

We were in and out at the ER in 40 min. , way better then we can do at the Dr. They said he had the croup and gave him a steroid. I stopped giving him the steroid by the next day because he also has a steroid in his nebulizer. Joel started doing alot better Friday and is continually doing better! Praise God! It is sooo scarey when one of your babies is having a hard time breathing. The scariest was when he would be a sleep he sounded awful! Lets just saw I did not sleep for 2 nights!. Please keep praying that he will be completely healed soon!!!

I have 2 more coughing but theirs is more of a congestion cough, nothing scarey. Keep our whole family in your prayers please!

I am so sorry to hear of the illness in your household. The whole breathing thing is horrible and scary. We are dealing with the same thing in our house and will be going to the doctor for the THIRD time tomorrow for the asthma. Makes it so tough to see your little ones (and big ones!) ill. Sending prayers of healing for everyone in your family.

I hope everyone starts to feel better soon! Corban has asthma too and when he gets a cold, it can be so scary! We have had many sleepless night with him too!

Praying that your sweet family has a happy and healthy start to the new year!!!
