Have thought long and hard with regards how to word this mesage and then finally decided just to spit it out!!
I am the proud mummy to a handsome 9 month old son.
Not only has he changed my life in ways I could never imagine for the first time in my life I am scared of my asthma.
I have very unpredictable brittle asthma and confidently say that I have never let it stop me doing anything!! that is until now.
Recently I found myself home alone with my son and rapid onset of symptoms left me no choice but to ring 999. I managed to get both of us on to the floor and there we remaind until the men in green arrived.
I was no longer aware of the situation until 24hours later when things had settled.
steps set in place prior to this episode were as follows.
preset txt on mobile to send to family and friends at the touch of a button- only my brother in law picked up this txt in time and fortunately arrived before my son was taken with me in the ambulance.
emergency sticker on inside of front door-paramedics came through the back
therefore didnt pick up information in the fridge.
Fortunately my son was fine, he is still not mobile (but not for much longer!!) and dispite a few unsettled days the whole event has left no lasting effects.
I just wondered if anyone else had emergency plans set in place that may help me to ensure my son is safe if i am in this position again and give me a little confidence back.
