I have to give him liquid steroids twice a day, and albuterol every four hours - ROUND THE CLOCK.  That mean, he's going to bed 2 hours late tonight, so I can wake him up at 2:00 AM to give him his inhaler, that will wake hime up, so he can go to sleep an hour later, so I can wake him up again at 6:00 AM (two hours early for him), and so on and so forth for at least two days.  Ugh.  We're going to have one grumpy boy on our hands! 

Please pray for us during this time.  Oh, and did I mention Angel turns six tomorrow.  I gotta go out and get some cupcakes.  :) 

Does anyone know the difference between kid asthma and adult asthma?  As far as I knew, it was chronic, but the doctor said that since Malachi is so young, he might grow out of it.  Why is that?  Does anyone know?
