JD's new toy

Starting last winter, whenever JD eats a little junk food (candy, burger, fries, etc.) she coughed. She coughed when she's laying down, and this cough can lasts for months. Finally, her doctor recommended us to see an asthma specialist. After waiting for a long time, finally we got an appointment time. And 2 weeks ago, we went to there. JD was diagnosed with a mild asthma. The doctor puts her on inhaler twice a day for prevention, because winter in Bergen is terrible for asthma.
At first, JD was afraid of it. But now, she loves her inhaler. She even wants to do it herself, and takes it wherever she goes.

It's a bit sad that she has to undergo this. But after a few days of using it, her cough's gone. She's been coughing for 2 months, and we've tried everything! Well, I guess we can wean her off it later in spring. But for now, HIP HIP HURRA for no coughing :))

I'm so glad it works for her maybe it will keep mild asthma from turning into something worse.

Glad she found some relief. My grandson had that when he was an infant but doesn't seem to be bothered with it now.
