Update on Emma Bemma

Gabby (Judy) and I took Miss Emma to the pulmonologist this morning for her nasty cough that has been going on for over 2 months now. The doctor says it is probably asthma related so we are going to try Pulmnicort twice daily for 2 months and we have a nebulizer with Albuterol for when she has bad coughing attacks. He said he could hear some movement in her lungs or something and her airways are probably a little swollen. So hopefully this will do the trick and we go back in 6 weeks. It doesn't really surprise me b/c they warned us in the NICU that most babies with chronic lung disease end up with asthma and she will probably grow out of it. So now Emma is on an antiobiotic for 3 weeks for her sinus issues, pulmnicort for 2 months and we are the proud owners of a beautiful nebulizer! Merry Christmas to us! :)
