Just wondering if anyone else has kids diagnosed with asthma? My DS who is 4 in May, was diagnosed officially in Nov after his first admission to hospital for asthma. When he was 6 months old he was diagnosed as anaphylactic to dairy and egg, so we've had concerns and suspicions he'd be asthmatic too, but the docs basically ignored my concerns and didn't refer me to a specialist to discuss the issues. Anyways, we now know he has asthma and how severe it is. He had another attack on Monday and just got out of hospital today (Friday) so 5 days in hospital. He's also now on a daily preventer medication to help control it so he doesn't have another attack. It's really difficult to manage at times and he was very nearly put into ICU and intubated as his oxygen sats were only 83% which is really very bad. It wasn't until a few days of being in hospital i realised the severity of just how bad asthma is and how life treatening it can be if not treated as soon as the onset of symptoms present. Disappointed in the health care system for not listening to my concerns earlier. And also now have to really keep a very close eye on him when he is symptomatic. Does anyone else have a young one with asthma, how do you manage it?
