Huffenpuff is the latest addition to our little family. He's a bright green home nebulizer. He came with stickers. We signed the papers very early on Sunday morning at the Children's of Minneapolis emergency room. Huffenpuff's adjustment to our home has been a little rocky. He's loud and he puffs a lot. He's eager to make friends with FiG but it's clear she's really just putting up with him because it makes us so happy. We keep trying to get them togehter, but she only plays along for a little while. And only if there are cartoons to watch.
FiG has a virus. There's no point in testing for RSV or some other named virus because there's no treatment. We took her to the ER because she was wheezing and it was clear she was having trouble breathing well. 5 hours, a chest x-ray, and a home medical device later she is on the mend. We are hoping that all of us are healthy to travel next Saturday.
While we were waiting in the basement of the hospital at the overnight pharmacy, there were 5 other parents who walked down the hall with the same nebulizer box. But their kids were much younger than FiG. One mom was there by herself with her newborn. I was very thankful to not be there on my own that night.
