Wheezy McGee hits the road

Well, it certainly looks like Logan got my genes. Although he hasn't officially been diagnosed with asthma, it is pretty clear. He does fine as long as we continue the nebulizer treatments, but is wheezing within a couple days of stopping the medication. The pediatrician had two recommendations for us. The first one is to get Logan away from the cats for a week. He suggested going to my inlaws for a week or taking a vacation. Hmmm... I wonder what we'd rather do.... So, we are planning a vacation! The second recommendation is to see an allergist. We are happy to do that, as we feel like we aren't getting to the root of the problem, just treating symptoms, rather than trying find out why he is having trouble.

So, vacation...
We are talking about renting a motor home and hitting the road! I'm really excited as we haven't had a vacation in about 3 years. Well, we did go to Chicago for a family reunion for a few days, but it was a whirlwind, with little time to see the sights. A few years ago we went to Hawaii for a family wedding, but it was a whirlwind with little time to see the sights. See a theme here? This way, we can see the sights at our leisure with no other family obligations, cook some meals as we want, etc... I think it will be really fun! It was Fillip's idea, and a great one.

What a good idea - there is nothing as nice as hitting the road slowely with someone you love and exploring the world around you. Let us know what happens and I hope it works out well for you two

I think a vacation in a motor home is the way to go. We are looking to take a family vacation to the East Coast in a motor home some time in the future.

Have a blast!!

We are really excited about it. We just can't help making comparisons of our life then and now. Four years ago we were a young couple in Amsterdam. Now we are taking the kids in a motorhome!
