Hello My son Fraser who has just turned 7 is off on a 2 night residential trip with his class in November, I know this is a little way away but this last week his asthma has been playing up particularly at night he has needed his inhaler several times during the night and I am just getting anxious about how he will cope at night on the trip, has anyone any experience or advise regarding overnight trips? My two older children have been on this trip and had a wonderful time and of course part of the whole experience is the sleepover, so although I could go and get him this wouldn't seem fair and he would resent this. The children sleep in rooms of approx 4 and the adults check them all until they are all settled, but Fraser never wants to ask for his inhaler and I am worried he will be coughing during the night and won't ask for help! At home I use a monitor at night and he never asks for his inhaler he just coughs and coughs until i go in and give him his inhaler, even thou i dont rush in he never asks!! Sorry to rant on, any ideas? Thanks Clare x
