Well minisock has finally made it. In September she starts reception and is so looking forward to it. The big question I have, and I feel terrible for not thinking of it before term finished to ask at school is, how do those of you with kids with atypical asthma manage. Minisock just coughs, which is what reminded me - she started with it this morning. She will cough, cough, cough until she is sick if it is left. She has been really good this past year or so and we've hardly had to think about whether her inhalers are available and her spacers are clean.
I shall be speaking to school as soon as we go back but I don't want them thinking she's being sick because of a bug if it does get worse again. A few puffs of her inhaler and I know she will be fine. But yes, tips on getting the school to understand she won't wheeze when she needs her inhalers, and she doesn't necessarily have a bug if she coughs herself sick would be appreciated.
I've ordered in a third spacer and set of inhalers just for school so I don't have to worry about remembering to swap between bags and to make sure hers are all in date and functioning.
Unfortunately our gp surgery doesn't have a dedicated asthma nurse/clinic where I could ask assistance.
