My daughter has just turned 2 and after a year of constant hospital admissions she was diagnosed with asthma several months ago. After the diagnosis she was put on 200 clenil morning and night as well as her blue inhaler when required, this didn't seem to have much effect so I was told to give 2 puffs of blue before clenil and seem to be constantly multi-dosing, she's now on Singulair at night and consultant said last week he is struggling to get her asthma controlled. She's constantly ill and given steriods, coughs non stop every night and sometimes throughout the day for up to a week. On wed she was admitted yet again to hospital with breathing problems and kept in until sat afternoon.
The only hope her consultant can give me is to get through this winter and once she's another year older things will improve as she grows, is this a possibility or is it simply to make me feel better?? I have no previous experience in dealing with asthma so its all new to me and right now very exhausting.
