Day 3- Teething and Tough!

Day 3 of HBOT and more teething and crying. Roa is a bit irritable today, and drooling quite a bit. That number 8 tooth is coming in. He did not nap after this mornings session, so hopefully he is sleeping in the chamber with Daddy as we speak!
This morning's session went a little better. Bryan is going in with Roa, Mom is trying hard to RELAX her nerves in the waiting area. We gave Roa benadryl and motrin for the pressure and his teething issues and that seemed to help this AM. Hopefully it will continue to help him this PM session. Roa goes in every day at 8:30am and 2:00pm.
Last night, Jen had a visit from Barb and Sue, SPED teacher friends here for a conference! Nice to catch up with them!
Today, Jennifer's sister, Vickie and her family were on their way to the WI State Fair, so they met us at the Madison Farmer's Market! It was great to get a hug from family and words of encouragement. We got emails from Jennifer (Miranda's mom from the great HBOT video), Ellen. Daisy, and Lenore today and a phone call from Heather (another HBOT mom) so our spirits are up with all the support! Thank you guys!
They say it will get better and Roa will not mind it as the week goes by. We gave up on the hood and Dave the technician gave us a oxygen mask to try and hold by Roa's face instead. We will see how it goes.
Keep those prayers a coming!


  1. Hang in there, Jen & Bryan, and you too Roa Jo! We are thinking about you and praying for you! Love ya! Kath, Gene, Nick and Josh

  2. I have been wondering how you were handling the first few days! Thanks for putting the video link on here, that is some pretty amazing stuff! Still looking for a time to come down, to see it all in action. I talked a bit to God this morning and asking him to give you all strength. Keep the faith!
