We ended up taking Griffin to the ER last night. He developed a raspy cough early on Monday morning, but by the end of the day yesterday it was pretty bad and he was wheezing quite a bit. When the doctor listened to him breathe, he said that Griffin was wheezing so bad that he couldn’t even hear if he had pneumonia. So, we had to give him a breathing treatment – a difficult feat with a 4-month old. He moved his head around so much that I could barely keep the mask up to his face. The doctor listened to him again and said that there was no pneumonia, but he was having an asthmatic reaction to a respiratory infection. Now we’re giving him breathing treatments twice a day for a week plus oral steroids and antibiotics. Good times.

Looks like the little guy wasn’t so lucky having asthmatic parents…
