Now Ryder is Sick

Last night Ryder did not sleep very well and this morning he sounded horrible. He was coughing, sneezing and wheezing! So we went to the pediatrician today. They said his lungs sounded bad so we did a breathing treatment in the office using Albuterol. After that he sounded so much better. So we were sent home with Albuterol to do every 4 hours for 5 days and then an oral steroid for the next 3 days. We go back on Saturday for a check-up to see how he is doing. They think he has a viral illness and possibly asthma. We are now trying to figure out if both boys have asthma which flairs up when ever they have an illness. Will update when we know more.
