Driving home yesterday. Dinks is in the backseat eating her obligatory bag of cheese puffs. Todays puff of choice is Cheetos Crunchy.
Dinks: *cough* *cough*
Me (looking back in the safety mirror): You okay there, Dinks?
Dinks (looking at me with a smile): I okay, mommy. I just need my medicine.
Me: Medicine, sweetpea? You mean breathing machine?
Dinks (with a big ole grin): Yeeaaaaaaahhhhh.
More coughing. It sounds gurgley and raspy. Great.
Dinks (in a non-panicy sing-song voice): Mommy! I need my breathing machine. I need the green medicine and the oval*.
Me: Okay, Dinkerdooes. We'll do that tonight.
Needless to say, I have been heavily reliant on my Zyrtec-D and Nasonex. Geo is Claritin-D bound. And Dinks is Zyrtec, Sudafed, Just Cough, and her breathing machine.
I hate allergies.
* - Breathing machine is her nebulizer. Green medicine is her Pulmacort .25 strength. Green is the color of the font on the box. And the oval is a reference to the mouthpiece to her nebulizer.
