Nebulizer Treatments

Because of Noah's asthma, he requires two nebulizer treatments every day. The nebulizer takes a liquid medication and turns it into a mist that Noah then inhales directly into his lungs. You would think that with all the uncomfortable, annoying and painful procedures that Mr. Man has to endure, this would be a piece of cake, but OH NO! Noah HATES his nebulizer treatments. They usually only take five - ten minutes and all he has to do is breathe. For some reason, however, Noah cannot stand them. He usually cries the entire time and works up a sweat kicking his feet and flailing his arms. Poor guy!

Here is Daddy giving Mr. Man his treatment. Daddy is trying to distract him with a rattle and soothe him with loving words. But, alas, nothing seems to work.

  1. Isn't it funny the things we think the would not mind sometimes are things that bother them the most?! Kids keep you guessing!

  2. I remember when Avery was a toddler and suffered with seasonal asthma. During the winter months, he required two inhaler treatments each day. Oh my goodness, it was SO hard to give them to him because it was definately the worst thing EVER for him. And, like Noah, all he had to do was breathe. In the beginning, we would both be in tears. But, thankfully, he gradually adjusted to the routine. Ironically, when he didn't need them anymore, he was quite upset that "Puff, puff" was no more. What can you do? Love to all!

  3. Bless his sweet little heart! Sometimes it's the seemingly small things that bug me the most too.

  4. Poor Noah and both of you! When I worked Peds Cardiac Intensive Care, we gave our own treatments to the little ones before we did the intra-trachial suctioning and THEY TOO hated that. Adults are just as bad though. I remember Dad had those treatments after his stroke and he HATED them with a passion.

    Hang in there little Noah, this too will pass as GReat Aunt Marion use to say. They are helping you grow and get big and strong. You are getting to be such a "BIG" boy now. Love and hugs to all from Cousin Sue in AZ

  6. Poor Noah! Not fair, huh?! Just try to think of pleasant things like hugs from Mommy and Daddy! Maybe they'll let you stomp on the neub when you are finally through with it once and for all! :)

  7. This is a great article. I’ve read in many other places before that but
    I did not get this type of effective and more useful text. It is really important now to
    vary your anchors as this seems more natural to user.
    This article helped me a lot to understand information.
