Asthma. A.S.T.H.M.A. Assssstttthhhhmmmmmaaaa. Nope, I don't like the way that sounds, no matter how I say it. But the asthma/allergy doctor today had no problem at all saying it when he told me Izzy and Sophie probably have it. This sucks.
I'm not trying to make a mountain out of a molehill here. I KNOW there are a million different diseases out there that would be far more devastating, and far harder to control. But no mom wants to hear that her kids are likely facing a lifetime of uneasy breathing. Of daily medications. Of doctors, and breathing treatments, and worry. Oh, the worry. It makes me sick just thinking about it.
Yep, this sucks. That about sums it all up.
