My step son had another asthma attack and his mum took phoned the doctors to get his prescription for steroids ready and took him up to hospital where they put him on a nebuliser and checked all his vitals his oxygen was 80 when he arrived and after the nebuliser it had gone up to 95 so rapid improvement. They Discharged him from A&E that same night and he came home at about 10.30pm. 5.30am comes around and he is bad again so he goes straight back up to the hospital straight back onto a nebuliser and it worked but this time they kept him in a bit longer and he needed another 2 times whilst he was there so they decided to admit him straight away. He has been in hospital since yesterday afternoon and has been on a nebuliser every 2 hours and this last time he was on it for nearly an hour. The doctors don't understand it because they can hear him wheezing and struggling for breath but his oxygen levels are normal and they shouldn't be. I just feel helpless as he is only 10 years old and the doctors don't seem to have the foggiest as to what is wrong. If they can't help him what chance do we have of helping him? I just don't know what to do thoughts keep going through my head making me panic about him like what if they can't find a solution what if he is going to be like this forever I feel so sorry for him and just want to take all of his asthma out of him and give it to me just so he doesn't have to suffer. Sorry for the big rant just wanted to get everything off my chest and this seemed to be the perfect place to do it.
