Its Already Started...





The following day after the Heart Walk, Nathan and Ellie both came down with a good cold and runny noses. By Monday Ellie was still the same, but Nathan really began to have a hard time breathing. He was coughing all night long and by Monday evening he was having a hard time catching his breath period. Jake took him to the Spanish Fork clinic where they took pictures of Nathan's lungs and determined he had croup. Fabulous. Jake came home with a new additional to our home health care stash; our friend The Nebulizer. The first night it frigtened Nathan so bad we had to hold his arms and legs down while the other gave him the treatment. That 15 minutes seemed like an eternity. By Wednesday Nathan was a champ at his breathing treatments. If it started to slide down his face he would push it up just like his glasses. I hope that Nathan won't have any lasting memories of this part of his life.

Did I mention its going to be a LONG WINTER?

Oh, what a bummer. You guys really are making a collection of health equipment! Don't you just feel so smart being able to spout off all of those tricky medical terms? ;)

P.S. We are praying for Jake. We hope everything goes good with the surgery tomorrow and that he will heal quickly. Even though we don't keep in touch very much you guys are always in our thoughts and prayers.
