Rowena's body decided to celebrate the autumnal equinox by starting up with the asthma again.  Whee.  I can't really even tell a difference in the weather to account for it.  Perhaps she has more triggers than just the viruses. 

She's not too bad.  I haven't had to take her to urgent care or anything.  We've done the nebulizer 4 times today.  Right at the end of spring, I spoke to the doctor about changing her medication, so this is the first time we've given it a real trial.  What happened back then was this.  We were giving her albuterol.  And she was getting hyper, aggressive and violent.  It suddenly clicked that I was *avoiding* giving her her medicine unless her breathing was *dire*.  That kind of made things worse, just in a different way than actually giving her the medicine.  The doctor told me there was a similar medicine that's often better tolerated.  It's actually the mirror molecule of the albuterol, if I understood correctly.  So far, so good.  She's hyper, but not agressive or violent.  And it really is easing her breathing.

With any luck, she'll sleep well tonight, and perhaps even sleep past dawn tomorrow.  I can dream anyway.  Toddlers...
