It’s funny how you forget something until you are back into it again right? Like those contractions that you forgot until DEAR LORD I REMEMBER THIS. Or when Kevin Rudd was put back in place as Prime Minister. Or for me yesterday, when Harper’s asthma was induced by Spring which has started to spring around these parts. I remembered instantly my dismay of September/October when Harp had an asthma cough for what seemed (and actually was) for months.
Last night after she had been coughing for 5 or so hours every 3.5 seconds and we were a cough vomit down and we had administered Vicks on the soles of her feet and chest and there seemed like NOTHING else we could do, I went into the kitchen, found a dodgy onion at the bottom of the pantry, cut that bastard in two and left it right next to where she was sleeping.
And you know what? She slept! For four hours straight! With just a few little coughs in between. She may have been exhausted, sure, but who cares? She slept. And I will be able to half function today. And with a little airing of the bedroom, our room will stop smelling like an Italian pizzeria. Thank you Nikki for suggesting this, and a few other people who may have, I don’t know why I waited this long.
Did you know an onion could do so much?
Have any other home remedies I should know about?
And for anyone out there with asthma or kids with asthma, I feel your pain. Get better! x
