Oh denial is a wonderful thing, isn't it?
Just last week, I met with Max's PCP for two hours. Included in the 15 items to be discussed was the daily inhaler/s. (Other issues included the MRIs, new medications, surgeries, sleeping issues, etc.) His pulmonologist and I had recently discussed the possibility of stopping them for a short time to test Maxwell. Max's PCP didn't quite agree and stressed the importance of the inhalers for a kiddo with chronic lung disease...especially going into the fall/school/germs.
As I was giving him an inhaler at 2am this morning (after Max woke up coughing so much that he vomited everywhere), I thought of Max's doctor and smiled. And just now as I was giving him an inhaler because of his heavy wheezing...I smiled. Ok doc, you were right. The lungs aren't quite yet what we want them to be. Got it.
