Hi everybody. Hope you are all well. I haven't posted on here for a while but I've still been reading the posts regularly
My little girl (Holly) is nearly 6 and used to have the most dreadful asthma, being admitted to hosp at least once amonth for two and a half years. The docs juggled her meds and for a whole year she was stable. She could'nt do all the things other children do but we managed to keep her out of hospital and that seemed to be enough for us.
The last 8 weeks have been an absolute nightmare though. I feel as if we're back to square one. We're constantly at docs and hosp and nothing we do seems to control it. She's up at least 3 - 4 times a night for ventolin and needs her inhaler a minimum of 6/7 times through the day.
We're lucky that she goes to a mainstream school who eventually sorted out a brilliant care plan for her and she has her own classroom assistant for support.
All she wants though is to be normal and its heartbreaking that her idea of normal isn't even everyone elses. We're seeing the consultant next week as her gp says that she should be stable on her meds and doesn't understand why she isn't. She gets 2 puffs of flixotide 125 morn and night as well as 1 puff of serevent seperately, citirizine and montelekaust and never seems to be off pred just now. Anybody any ideas on what the next step will be. We tried increasing her serevent but it gave her horrendous headaches which is why she gets it seperately now.
Sorry this is a long post. I'm really stressed
