Shannon’s Mind on Monday(MOM): Asthma and Churros

It’s been so crazy for the past 2 weeks, I’ve been slacking on my MOM posts.

We went to The White House which was amazing. Then the weather in New York finally warmed up and I was excited because I thought it meant Amelia would be breathing easier. Unfortunately, last weekend she had to go to the ER. At first we thought it was allergies but Zyrtec didn’t help. Then when we got to the hospital, the doctors said her asthma attack was caused by an infection and the drastic change in weather.

Everyday our move to LA is looking like a smarter choice for Amelia. I am so excited about it and wish we could move sooner. I can honestly say that I won’t miss much about New York. I will however miss Amelia’s pediatrician and everyone at her practice.

Asthma is very stressful especially when your child is first struggling with it and you don’t know all the triggers. Everyone at the pediatric practice Amelia goes to has been so helpful and supportive. Many of the nurses have kids with asthma and have offered some amazing advice. I hope that I am able to find a pediatrician as good as our current one once we move to LA.

So here are my links for the week and also let me know if you know any good websites our articles about childhood asthma. Have a good week!

At Rent the Runway, if you’re a new customer, use code 25OFFNEW and receive $25 off orders of $75+.

I love churros and I love ice cream. Luckily, Los Feliz has an churro ice cream sandwich shop!!!

Judith Regan has fallen out of love with New York too and now my only question is… Does anyone have anything good to say about New York anymore?

As you all know The Obamas are a huge source of inspiration for us. Malia Obama suffers from asthma. When we told Amelia this she felt a but better about her annoying asthma(her name for it). I recently re-read some experts from what Michelle Obama has written in the past about asthma. I agree with what she said and find her tips helpful but can’t help but be a bit jealous of her daughter’s experience compared to Amelia’s. I wish there was a way for all children suffering from asthma to get the help they need.

    Hi, Shannon! My family and I have recently moved to Upstate NY and I’m trying to find the good about it. Unfortunately we moved in the winter, so that really bummed me out. All this snow and extreme cold, UGH. But I’m hopeful that the Spring and Summer will be much better. And I hope your move to LA goes smooth. Fingers crossed that Amelia’s asthma does much better once you move. Seems like the Mid-Atlantic region has tons of allergy triggers. Wishing you tons of good luck!

      NY is so pretty in Spring, Summer, and Fall. it’s pretty in winter… just cold. I actually LOVE NY but hate it now because my daughter can’t breathe here and the price of raising a kid in the city is just crazy. I will miss living here but am excited for our new chapter.

    New York was great to visit but I wouldn’t want to live there. It was too crowded and as a person with social anxiety, it would not benefit me to live there. As far as Asthma goes, I have it as well but a minor case controlled by an inhaler. Mostly if I have an infection it flairs up. Hope she gets better soon.

      Your asthma sounds like Amelia’s. It was hard to diagnose because she is usually fine… but when she has a flair up it’s bad.
