Why oh why are school so stipid when it comes down to asthma practice? My Ryan at present is having ot have his brown and green inhalers in school as well as anti-bios. These ar eonly to be done at lunch time and then he is to still have his blue inhaler as required and at least 10 mins before PE today. Well they didn't give hiim his inhaler before PE and they did it out-side in the cold and they refused to allow him to wear his coat on top of his PE kit. Well I guess you can tell what happened next? Yeap he had a asthma attack and instead worse of all they made him walk inside school to get his inhaler as they didn't take it out-side with them. They know how bad his asthma is and they know at present he is on infection management action plan until further notice due to him being treated for a chest infection but Ryan refuses to take time off school as he believes if he can walk to school and only us the inhaler once we get to school then he is OK to attended school whcih I feel is far enough as he does enjoying being around his peers. Well they had to give him his blue nhaler 3 times before he started improving. I then didn't fin dout about the attack until I was told by Ryan on the way home. I am going ot speak to his teacher again tomorrow and make it clear to her that even though he is having the preventors at lunch he still needs to the blue inhaler before PE or the other opton is I write a letter making it clear that Ryan does not do PE until further notice which isn't far on Ryan. When are schools going ot learn that asthma is not just a thing that parents make up to make things hard for them at school it is real life or death medical issue. This has made more interested in fin dout what the teachers do know about asthma when I do the asthma in limelight day.
OK rant over thank you for reading everyone I just needed to get it off my chest and out to other parenst that know how I am feeling right. Off the soap box until tomorrow know
