Whenever the rainbow appears in the clouds, I will see it and remember the everlasting covenant between God and all living creatures of every kind on the earth." Genesis 9:13

I've stuck very carefully with taking 1 of the 2 doses of the mild steroid inhaler I got last week. I noticed yesterday that I wasn't having constant asthma attacks, I was breathing without pain, and I could almost take a deep breath.  I thought it was because yesterday was nothing but taking it easy.

Well, today was the return to normal.  And I only has 2 smaller asthma attacks all day.  And even at the end of the day my voice sounded normal.  I had come to believe my voice was permanently damaged by whooping cough. Guess not.

And then an awesome thing happened---my sister emailed to see if I was ok because she knew I was stressed yesterday.  That made me happier than anything has in months.  It only took a baby girl to build a relationship that seemed damaged forever........

Soooo, half a dose of the mild steroid inhaler is making THAT big of a difference? Wow. WOnderful! Excellent! And side effects? Not too bad???? I am hoping this is the corner you needed to turn. Perhaps no hospitalization after all? I will be waiting to hear what happens at your appt today.

I hope you and your sister continue on the healing path. My 1st baby helped to make my mom and I closer too. Something about those little ones make us love more. Ya think?

Glad the breathing is better - hoping it takes care of the asthma in a gradual fashion. Glad the voice is coming back too!!!!

Amazing how little baby smiles make everything different.
