    Photo replay: Breathing easy ... sort of

    Mac was prescribed several days of breathing treatments for his bronchiolitis, diagnosed during my visit last week. Here he has his first treatment, giving Mommy the thumbs up that he's doing okay with "Dino," the breathing mask. Only thing: Sweet guy's not yet got the thumbs-up gesture figured out.

    Enjoy your Sunday.

    Such a cutie! I hope he's soon breathing freely. This winter seems to have been hard on so many; it seems half the people I know have been down with serious cold and respiratory infections.

    There really are some Monster Buggs going around right now. I sure hope Mac is feeling better.

    Hope those treatments do the trick; love his effort at giving the thumbs-up sign.

    Hope he's doing better. He's a cutie and your daughter is a beauty!

    Glad to see it's a 'thumbs' up from Mac...however, he decides to show it :) I'm still trying to learn all the 'new' medical terms and treatments. I was heartbroken the first time I saw my Granddaughter on one of these machines, but it certainly seemed to help. I hope the treatments help Mac, too!

    In my opinion, lousy germs this year. I'm sick and tired of being sick and tired...

    I'm so glad Mac is on the mend! Just got off the couch myself after 4 days of a horrible sore throat and cough. Now hubby has it so I'll prolly get it again! (Sorry for the negative thoughts but I'm in the same mood Nonnie Kelly is in, I guess!)

    Very sweet. I'm glad he's doing okay whether he understands thumbs up or not. : )

    sad--all three of my new little babies have RSV. we're doing the breathing treatments too.
