Hi I am new to this board.
I am Sarah, a full time mum to Isaac 20 months who has asthma.
Isaac had his first 'viral wheeze' last december, but has had many more since.
Last week he had a scary attack in which he turned blue and floppy, they then gave me a prventer for him as well as his salbutamol. Isaac has also just finished a course of prednisilone (4th time this year), but they make him extremely angry and aggressive until a week after he stops. Does anyone else find this happens to their child?
Hopfully now we have a preventer we will be on top of it more.
Isaac uses his reliver an awful lot throughout the day as he is very very active, but even when he was in hospital on hourly nebulisers he wouldn't stay still!
I have many many questions etc, but know no one who has a young child with asthma and fell quite alone at the moment. Isaac's Dad has asthma as does my brother and uncle so it is in the family.
Sorry to go on. I wasn't sure how to start my opening message.
