Ear Infection and breathing treatments

So I took jakson to the doctor yesterday and it turns out he has a right ear infection. It is his first one and his birthday is tomorrow!! Poor boogy :(

The dr also asked about his cough. I told him that it is what wakes him up in the middle of the night and he listened to his chest and said it sounded horrible. He asked if we could try a breathing treatment and see if it helps and that it usually only does anything 50% of the time.

So for 5 minutes(which felt like an eternity) I held jakson down while he cried and screamed and flailed his arms. It was torture for the both of us. The dr came back in and said he sounded 100% better. So we now own a breathing machine. We have to do it 4 times a day for atlease a week. Only catch is, it is only a temporary fix but he said hopefully he should sleep better, and guess what?!? I slept until 7:30 :) but now I hear him coughing again...so here we go again!

Here is Josh doing Jakson's breathing treatment last night. Look at those crocodile tears!!

Passed out on me at publix waiting on our prescriptions after a very long doctor's appt and a huge grocery shopping trip at Wally world :)
Did I mention that I am going to have a 1 year old tomorrrow?!?! AHHHHHH!!!
