hello everyone althow iam new to this site iam not new to asthma my son is now 7 and had his first attack at 9 months. after a good few years of learning to deal with his asthma and finding his triggers (and hospital stays ) i now have it under a fair controll althow i belive asthma to be unpredictable i normally see when hes starting to get a littel unwell and i jump on it normally getting past the attack. But as you all probley well no there are times you just cant and he has a attack which i can deal with mild ones. The main thing that bothers me is a couple of years ago my son had a very nasty attack nothing i did help whilst waiting for the ambulance i was watching him breathing when he stoped i was with my dad at the time and luckly my dad grabed him and the shock made him gasp and breath again we ened up haveing a stay in hospital. but now i getting so worried when hes ill i have to be close bye the hole time i cant sleep when hes chesty every noise makes me jump to him i have a nebuliser and use it. but hes attacks are getting worse and lasting longer i no full well as soon as he has oxygen followed by a neb then more oxygen he starts pull out and then is controlled by just nebs the thing is i fill iam not being listend to by doctors and i doubt thay would let me have oxygen at home for such emergency if i did i would only use it whilst waiting for the ambulance. althow he hasnt been in hos[pital for a while as i have struggled to manage it i now fill its getting harder to control he has dips were he will pull out a bit then in the blink of a eye hes in big trouble again i worry this will happen and the abulance will take to long and he may stop breathing again
iam sorry i have gone on abit i just wanderd if any one has any advice. i truly do have hes asthma under control but can see its getting harder and longer to pull him back .
