My sweet boy Aiden is sick again.
Common cold + playing outside in freezing cold weather + asthma = sick little boy struggling to breath normally.
I hate asthma.
I hate THE cough. The cough that indicates my son is struggling to take a deep breath.
I hate that when we see the doctor he says "well, he's not wheezy so it's probably just croup".
Our asthma specialist says that Aiden's croupy coughing IS his asthma. It means he is having an asthma attack.
Of course our asthma doctor is 3.5 hours away. Not so useful.
Anyway, I would really appreciate your prayers for Aiden. Asperger's Syndrome is PLENTY for him to be dealing with right now without piling brutal Asthma and chronic croup on top. In the past 5 hours Aiden has told me he is scared that he can't breath, he is scared that he will stop breathing and he said "I don't want to die mommy".
THAT is how real it feels to him. And you know what? I have asthma too and it DOES feel like you can't get any air and you are going to die. No child should EVER have to deal with vivid fears like that.
So please pray for my son.
