Tuesdays are Your Turn – Cold Air Attacks
Wintry weather never triggered my daughter, not even when we moved to Colorado and started hiking high up in the Rockies. But AG surprised me when she ended up hyper-sensitive to cold air during her recent bronchitis.
About four days mid-infection and two days into her course of antibiotics, boredom set in. Watching movies on the couch and playing video games had lost their appeal, and she begged me to let her read on our sunny front porch while the Sidekick skated around on the sidewalk.
At fifty degrees, with sunny blue skies and a promise not to indulge in activity beyond turning the pages of her book, why not?
She lasted four or five minutes before the harsh, bronchial coughing started back up and sent her back to the couch with her bronchodilator, to her great disappointment.
Now we wait and see if the next winter flare or major illness finds her sensitive to the chill again.
Does cold weather trigger you/your kid? How badly and under what circumstances?
