Pulmonary specialist

(Updated) Ian's breathing is still labored, so Annie is taking him to the doctor for another checkup this morning. The doctor told Annie over the phone that we may need to take him to see a pulmonary specialist.

Ian sleeps well through the night, but it may be too well. All that work just to breath wears the little guy out. Breaks my heart, watching him work at it so hard. Some days he's so pale, like rice paper. His skin is translucent - delicate.

He's smiling a lot. And he's trying to laugh. I'm not sure, but I think he's laughing with me and not at me.


[2:45 pm - Ian has another appointment back at Children's Hospital on Monday afternoon to do more tests on his labored breathing.]
