I hope you and yours are all doing well. As predicted, Leo's asthma started to flare up over the weekend, about 8 wks after his last hospital admission. This time I started him on his emergency preds straight away (well, a day after his symptoms began because the first day I wasn't sure whether it was just the start of a cold).
I didn't think that they would make a huge difference and even phoned the ward (he has open access) letting them know we would probably be coming in later that day.
5 hours later he was bouncing on the trampoline! The change in him was amazing, he has had 9 courses of pred in the last yr including one that lasted for 3 wks and it has NEVER taken effect this quickly before, we were amazed!
I put it down to the Seretide that he has had for 6 weeks as I can't think of any other explanation. He has two puffs twice a day. If this is working without the Singulair then I am really pleased and hopeful that we will now be able to keep his asthma under control and keep him out of hospital...I almost feel that I might be tempting fate writing this but so far so good....
It might be nice to hear of other success stories like Leo's so if you have one feel free to add it in here
