Happy Sunday everyone! This last week was a whirlwind. If you’ve followed the blog for any length of time, you may have noticed me mention little man having a cold or not feeling well or allergies. Well friends on Monday night, little man had a full blown asthma attack, scaring both myself and husband (a former nurse and doctor, respectively). He started coughing and just didn’t stop, like he couldn’t catch his breath. Now this cough wasn’t continuous. He’d cough for a few minutes, then stop for a minute, then start up again. After a couple hours of this and trying different things we knew to work, we started debating ER. Trust me for me to suggest a trip to the ER it’s big.

Long story short, little man finally fell asleep and didn’t cough as much. I slept with him and took him straight to his doctor the next morning. X-rays and a few breathing treatments later we got our diagnosis: asthma. Now that we have an answer for the cough that just wouldn’t go away I feel a bit stupid. Looking back at all the times he had a really bad cough, the sleepless nights where he was up and down all night despite over-the-counter cold medicine, things I blames on allergies….if I’d just done something sooner….oh well! At least we know now AND the inhaler works, little man doesn’t fight it and he’s slept though the night every night Wednesday.

Reading wise, I didn’t get much reading done. My mind has been on a hundred and one different things that I need to do, need to clean, need to check…you get the idea. I did manage to read the second book in Anne Bishop’s series The Others and one review book as well.

Did you do anything fun this week? Read any good books?

Currently Reading

I’ll be honest a sec….I’m writing this post on Saturday morning. I’m currently reading The Shadow Queen by CJ Redwine and have no doubt that I’ll finish it before this post goes live on Sunday SO my next read is That Girl, Darcy by James Ramos. It’s a twist on the classic Pride and Prejudice which y’all know I love! I have high hopes for it ?

  1. I was just told my son has Asthma but not full, only when he gets sick he is prone to get it. Scary. I am glad you are able to figure it out and get treatment, inhalers are a great thing.

    Hope this week is a better one for you! Enjoy your new books! Happy Reading, Lillian! ox
