So this week, I pulled out my camera while I was playing with the girls. We had built a very extravagant (well, as extravagant as an old sheet and duct tape can possibly be…) castle in our living room. We had an army of scantily clad Barbies battling dragons, dinosaurs and questionable characters in an effort to free my two warrior princesses. And then life called. It reminded me that my little girl isn’t as invincible as that warrior princess who just slayed the 130 foot “dragon.” I decided to show photos of this, the painful side of our REAL life, instead of only sharing the good parts. My little girl has asthma. Nope, it’s not the end of the world. Yep, we count our blessings each and everyday that it’s nothing worse than this. I can tell you though, that at the first sniffle or wheeze, our stomachs flip and we wonder if her newest drug protocol will work. We don’t wonder IF, but WHEN and how long we’ll be in the hospital. It means that every cold will not simply pass in 5-7 days, but instead become a battle against pneumonia. It means we watch our strong, amazing girl lie nearly lifeless as she struggles to breathe. Typical for us, one of her allergies was triggered as we played and she had a flare up. Typical for us, she balked when I told her we needed a breathing treatment NOW. So here we are. This is part of our regular life and I’m sharing it with you today.
My sweet little girl…hoping she grows out of this very soon.
