Breathing treatments...again

My nasty cough decided to come back. I still had some breathing treatments left over from before, so mom decided to start me back up again. I quickly remembered how much I did NOT like them. It's mainly the beginning, when she starts the machine (its a little scary). But then I get used to it. Hopefully it goes away so I don't have to go to the doctor.

Digging for Gold

Guess what I learned? I've learned to pick my nose. I've done it a few times before, but now I do it all the time. I really just do it because mom and dad tell me to stop picking my nose. When mom and dad see that I am picking my nose, they usually pull my finger away but it always finds its way back to my nose pretty quick...and then I usually follow that with a smile and a laugh because I know they don't want me to do it. I'm a little stinker sometimes. But that's why everybody loves me.

Where's Dad?

Hey everyone, sorry it's been so long. But I've been extremely busy lately, so has mom and dad. I haven't even seen dad since Sunday, I've seen glimpses of him here and there before he leaves for work but that is about it. Mom told me he had some big project at school that is due this week, so dad has been going to the library after work and staying there until the wee hours of the night. Hopefully after this week we'll get to spend a lot of time together and play!
On another note, I am over my bronchitis. I really hated those breathing treatments. I would get mad even before they started. Mom would bring the mask thingy out and I would get all mad and start growling at her. I really didn't like them. So I am glad they are over.
I have another evaluation at the school today. So I'll let you know how that goes.
Other than that, I have been feeling much better and sleeping through the night. Therapy is still going well. I can even tell that I am getting much stronger. Last night, I was sitting up with mom and I held my head for about a minute before I lost control. I have also been tolerating my stander much better. It won't be long before I will be all over the place.

Well I went to the doctor on Friday and guess what - I have bronchitis. I have been coughing for the last week. But it has seemed to have gotten worse. I cough and it is like I can't get anything up. So the doctor checked me out and sounds like I am wheezing a little also. So she said I have bronchitis and she put me on breathing treatments. I wasn't for sure what that was but I learned pretty quick. I thought maybe I had to do some deep breathing or something along that line, but I was wrong. I have to wear this mask over my mouth, or sometimes mom just holds the mask in front of my mouth. It it lets off this steam and I breathe it in. That part is not that bad, it is the sound of the machine that I don't like. But it only lasts about 10 minutes at the most - so that's good. I am already starting to feel better.

Going to School

I got to do something pretty exciting today. Mom and I got to go to school. Apparently, after I turn 3, (which isn't that far away) I am supposed to go to school. Right now I am getting therapy through First Steps which is a program provided by the state, but only up to the age of three. So once I turn three, my therapy services will be provided by the school. So I got to check it all out today. I got to meet all my new therapists and some of the teachers. They all seem very nice and I think I will like it there once I get used to it. I didn't really show off for them today - because if I do now, how will I impress them later. I need to keep everyone on their toes and keep them guessing at what I will do next. I go back for another evaluation in two weeks, maybe I'll do a little extra something then.

Allergic Reaction

Apparently I am allergic to something but I am not sure what it is. My Aunt Tori had a surprise XXth (I better not say how old, I want to stay on her good side) birthday party Saturday night that I went too. I was just hanging out with everyone and then we ate. I ate some potato salad and pork 'n beans. Some time had passed and all of a sudden my eye started itching. Shortly there after, my eye started to swell up and these little, white bumps started forming around my eye. I was a little scared, because I didn't know what was going on. Mom was too. One moment I could look out of my eye and the next I couldn't even open my eye. I had no idea what was going on. So dad got a cold washcloth and held it over my eye. That felt a little better but I kept trying to pull it off because I just wanted to itch it. Mom also gave me some Benedryl to help the swelling go down. By the time we went home, I could finally open my eye. And before I went to bed, it looked much better. The picture was taken right before I went to bed. Which looks pretty good considering what it looked like before. This morning I was back to normal. Which was good because it was so pretty outside that I spent a lot of the day outside working on my tan.
