Air - often under-rated

Last night was another tough one as a mom (and dad for Matt).  The boys started getting sick late Monday afternoon, and yesterday sick turned into major troubles breathing for Wilson.  At 7pm I rushed him back into the ER and they barely asked a question before hooking him back up to a nebulizer to help breathe.  Wilson knew it would make him feel better and was even holding the mask on by himself (my smart boy).

Matt stayed home with Cole who kept waking up crying for "Wishun" which was heartbreaking.

Today both boys were feeling sick so Matt gave them a treat ... TV.  I'm afraid they were too tired/icky feeling to truly enjoy it, though...
While the hospital and our pediatrician won't say if it's "asthma" (there really isn't a way to say definitively it's that), we're going to start looking into common allergens to see if something is triggering this.

Here are the most common allergens: pollen and dust mites
Here are the most common food allergens: milk, wheat, soy, eggs, nuts, seafood, and legumes, which include peas, beans, and peanuts

So sorry they are sick but love your photo updates. Even when they're blue they're beautiful.
