All About Asthma...

Aiden and Reilly had an asthma check up today, and I decided to snap some photos so that those who are fortunate enough NOT to have to deal with the hassle of it...or for those who just might be curious what an asthma check-up is like...you can see firsthand the "excitement" of our exams. The girls helped take a few photos, so some of these are directly from their point of view. As for the ones I took, sorry for the blurriness...I only had the camera on my phone and it's hard to hold steady for a clear shot while I'm holding Mac in the other hand...I hope you can forgive me.
Waiting, waiting, waiting... 
...and waiting some more...
Might as well get some reading done...
...and enjoy the view... 
...and look at the cool ceiling lights... 
At least Roo is in good spirits... 
...she does have her pretty shoes on, after all.
This is the breathing machine...
Aiden started the tests, but Roo stayed close behind for moral support...
The balloon test (1 of 3 tests)...Reilly loves it, Aiden not so much...
Now Roo gets ready to start her tests...
 
45 minutes or so later, the testing is all done...now we're just waiting for the doctor to come in and give us our new treatment plan.
And that's it! We are all done for now. The girls did great and showed significant improvement from our visit 2 months ago. The girls' treatment plan was changed from 2 meds/2 breathing treatments a day to 2 meds/1 breathing treatment a day. In 3 weeks, we get to reduce the treatment to 1 med/1 breathing treatment a day. Hopefully, we'll get to the point where we don't have to do daily breathing treatments at all! Fingers crossed...and celebrating that we are done with today's appointment! Yay!!
