What the heck is with January and Emma???

by debi9kids on January 17, 2012

I woke up this morning to the sound of Emma hacking away in her bed.
It’s bronchitis, I’m sure.
Again.

It seems like every single winter, Emma is sick and usually with some kind of coughing, hacking illness that will inevitably be passed on to Will, then Keith and then everyone else in the house.

And while I love that it does slow her down a bit and even gets her to stop talking for long enough to nap it really is getting old, and annoying.

Just to prove my point, because sometimes I feel like I might be insane, I searched back into my archives just to see and sure enough, the exact same week almost to the exact same day, Emma was sick in both 2011 and 2010.
Something tells me if I continued searching through my archives, I might find similar photos of my poor sick girl in years prior as well.

What the heck?
I know it’s cold.
I know the temperatures are dropping dramatically.
But really?
Every January?
Really?

I would love just one winter, just one January, where I didn’t have to revive our nebulizer and give treatments ’round the clock.

Just one.

Have you thought about chiropractic/kines care? Sometimes there is a link between mind and body. I'd be asking what was happening her very first January around this time?

I got ear infections every single February until I was 32 and commented on it to my chiro. Two adjustments later, and a shift in thinking thanks to the kines, and I haven't had an ear infection since!

((hugs)) Hope it doesn't spread this year!

I get it I do….Kloe has reactive airway becaus she got RSV when she was a baby in the fall…..now every spring and every fall that child has issues. Right now we are on inhaler twice a day, nebulizer once a day, two allergy meds, and a nose spray! It SUCKS. If we stop anything she starts barking like a seal. We were on two neb treatments a day……we so pulmocort in the ned….it sucks, I feel you!

Me too. Except mine hits in February, without fail. Must be a preemie thing.

My best friend deals with this every year as well with all 3 of her kids. It's the craziest thing and it's just like clockwork. She can't seem to do a thing to stop it! =( I hope Emma gets better soon!
