My little girl, aged 2, has Brittle Asthma. We deal every day with her condition and often struggle. However, since the consultant was quite blunt with us that things wont get better (she aspirates food) then we have slowly but surely realised we need to accept and deal with it, however heartbreaking and tough it is
My elder daughter, aged 5, has had mild Asthma since she was a baby. Its always just ticked along. Nothing out of the ordinary, Clenil and Ventolin. She has now been increased to adding Serevent and Montelukast too. Again, its nothing new having had her little sister alot lot worse.
However, lottie (the eldest) is now on her 4th dose of Pred in 5 weeks!! She has been hospitalised in that time, nebbed etc.
Today she was sent home from school as they couldnt get her symptoms under control!! More pred!!
I just feel totally exhausted with it all!! My tiny girl is Brittle, its taken ages to get used to it. Our eldest has always been known as 'mild'. And now this!!
I just feel like throwing my arms up in the air and saying 'why us?!'
Sorry, not sure why Ive written this. Just shocked at recent events and feel confused!!
