hi it's me again! Well we have just gotten through another bad phase and are glad to be out of the other side! My son has to go back for another chest x-ray in a month's time to check on things but the pneumonia and asthma have cleared up and all is under control for now.
When at the hospital the two docs I saw asked which consultant he normally sees about his asthma (neither of them showed much interest or knowledge about his asthma but just dealt with the pneumonia). I said that we have never seen a consultant about his asthma & they surprised. Then I saw our asthma nurse and mentioned it to her but she didn't really comment about it. What is normal for children? Do they only ever see asthma nurses, or do they have to have severe asthma to be referred to a consultant? Should I ask to have him referred or do i just keep plodding along with the nurse and almost monthly attacks and preds and antibiotics.
Appreciate any thoughts again! THANK YOU.
