I realize I am responding to a post from a year ago, so I hope you don't mind. More imortantly, I hope in this year your family has been able see the specialist in London and your little one is doing better.
My question to you is what sort of issues, behaviors and signs or symptoms prompted or prompt you to make a visit to the hospital? I have a daughter, who at 13 months was diagnosed with asthma-- now, at 19 months we have made very little progress. Although her coughing is better under control since she is on a treatment plan (steroid, two puffs twice a day), but it wasn't until I pushed and refused to accept that "nothing is wrong" according to the doctors. Unfortunately, when she gets a cold or cold virus her coughing and asthma flare up to the point of where she is wheezing, can't catch her breath and coughs so hard and so often she vomits and will vomit until there is nothing in her system.
I have never had her admitted to the hospital. Have you had your child admitted the hospital for similar symptoms?
I appreicate your taking the time to read this, and if you have time and would not mind responding I would be grateful! Be well, SaraView Thread
