But you know what? I'm not complaining because he isn't complaining. :) This kiddo is unbelievably amazing! He actually is now letting me suction his nose with NO crying!!! I have done it to myself just to see what it feels like and it's not fun. But yet Mighty Maxwell tolerates it like a champ! I have to do lots of funny faces when I am suctioning for him to be ok with it, but hey, whatever works! :) He truly is amazing.
The other night he was having such a difficult time breathing in his sleep. Then he started coughing so hard that he was crying miserably. So once I calmed him down, I went to suction him and he actually fell right back to sleep during the process. I was even able to give him all three of his inhalers...and he didn't fuss at all about it.
I hope this new "acceptance" phase is here to stay...loving, loving, loving it!!! :)
Just for proof of how cool this kid is, I had my mom take some photos of him sleeping through all of this!
Max's room can look like a mini hospital at times...that's his oximeter and stethoscope on our left, suction machine on the right, and oxygen tubing by my leg.
(Oh, and please excuse the dirty socks...just took out the trash in my socks! Opps!)
How cute and cuddly is my lil' man...even when receiving an inhaler???
