Week 26 - Respiratory Virus

"Take my breathe away......." Well, little Kayden has snuffled nose this week and he sounded like snorking piggy! It's not funny too as it's pretty dangerous if he got suffocated or mucus goes into his lungs!

How did he catch a flu? According to Dr. Oh, it's respiratory virus and is common among babies. She showed me Kayden's breathing in-out pattern. Woah! And she also suspected that Kayden has nose allergy.

What did he use?
