Breathing treatments & little green men

Caitlin has had a very strange, deep barky (sp?) cough ever since she was born. At first we were told that it was just her lungs getting rid of the fluid from being born c-section. Then it was the fact that she was a baby and babies didn't have as developed lungs as adults. It was always a really plausible reason so I made the assumption that they knew what they were talking about. This past week however the cough got worse and now she wheezes when she breathes as well. Several people told me it sounded asthmatic (sp?) and when it didn't get better I took her to the doctor. To make a long story short they still don't know what's wrong with her. It could be an allergy to something environmental, asthma, or something else. ?? We brought home a nebulizer and some medicine that has steroids in it for asthma and are to return in two weeks. In the mean time we've had "fun" trying to keep her still for her breathing treatments. Dominic makes funny faces to keep her entertained and loves holding her "breathing treatment fish".
Yesterday Dominic was talking to someone. Jon asked him who he was talking to.
"My friend, Wuacomole. He's keeping my brother company"
"Oh, What does Wuacamole look like"
A duh look and then
"He's green, Daddy." (Guacamole, maybe??)
