My family has a story that is probably very similiar to many of yours out there: we deal with allergies. And let me be clear: we deal with allergies on a pretty severe level.
See, when my sweet Luke was less than two years old, I went back to teaching while pregnant with Reagan. Around October, he developed a cold that he just couldn’t shake. The Husband and I chalked it up to being exposed to new germs in daycare for the first time, not thinking that it was anything more serious.
We became accustomed to our spunky little guy looking like this every few weeks. We’d make him as comfortable as possible and try to ease the effects.
And then Reagan showed up.
After Reagan came, I became much more hyper aware of his health issues. When Reagan became sick and had to be sent to the local Children’s Urgent Care at 17 days old for developing cold symptoms of her own and we had to deal with all of the awfulness of having your newborn suffer through that junk, I threw in the towel and made the call to our pediatrician. It was time to figure out a solution.
As it turns out, Luke was really sick.
He was suffering from such rough seasonal allergies that it caused him to be diagnosed with allergy-induced asthma. His oxygen levels were so low that we were warned he might have to be sent to the hospital. Luckily, the breathing treatments in the pediatrician’s office worked just enough so we were able to head home. Luke was started on a pretty intense regime of breathing treatments to help keep his oxygen levels back at an acceptable level.
Now, three years later, we have a much better handle on his allergies and asthma. Luke no longer demands to wear our pot holders while receiving his treatments; instead, he happily completes his homework without any fuss.
The one major constant that we’ve had through our entire journey with allergies and asthma? Kleenex.
I’ve always been a facial tissue snob and will hands-down choose Kleenex every single time I’m given a choice. Knowing that I have a thick and soft tissue that I can trust will help my son feel better is important to me and now that he’s getting older, he’s noticing the difference between the quality of Kleenex and other brands.
