The doctor said she has Bronchitis and he suggested we use her nebulizer every 6 hours. Wednesday night was scary. Her asthma seemed to be getting worse throughout the day and she was taking the nebulizer more and more often. Instead of every 6 hours she was taking it every 4 hours. She coughed all night and at 11pm I went in to sit with her.
This is the question I can’t stop asking myself: What would a single mom in El Rosario do if her child were in the same situation? I was able to provide multiple medical options, in the middle of the night. Cecilia was able to take a steam shower at 3am. I was able to microwave a hot cup of tea to calm her cough. I was able to do it all, with light. Most single moms we know do not have electricity.
