Pookie is sick

Since Christmas Pookie has had a cough.  It has come and gone, so I didn't think much of it.  Last weekend she got really congested and was obviously sick.  I took her to the doctor on Monday and have been back 2 more times this week.  Basically she had a cold, it turned into a lung infection and now she has all the symptoms of asthma.  The doctor assured me she doesn't actually have asthma.  She doesn't seem that much better, but I am hopeful that over the weekend she improves and we don't have to go back.  Apparently a few years ago they would of hospitalized her for a week or two but now they get the parents to do the treatments at home.  That kind of scared me.  She has to do breathing treatments... which I really don't like.  I just feel really upset about the whole thing.  Apparently breastfeeding doesn't make you immune to everything.

Night weaning? What night weaning? :P We have put that on hold. With the teething and now her cough it just doesn't seem like the right time. Will it ever be? She still doesn't nurse to sleep and at night she is nursing MUCH less. As in she will only nurse for a minute and roll back into the twin bed. I take that as a good sign.
