I'm not new to this - my son was 3 in February and has had recurrent viral wheeze incidences since having bronchialitis at 9 months. He's been admitted 11 times and seen in A&E more times than I can count. I just wondered if anyone had any advice? Either of how to cope with this - I'm a single working mum - or how to combat it? He's under a consultant and is prescribed 2 puffs of clenil in the morning and at bedtime and 10 puffs of salbutamol as and when he needs it - it's rarely manageable at home. It usually ends in the need for some oxygen and a nebuliser. And usually that does the trick. Sometimes he needs back to back nebs and oxygen.
I think I'm just looking for some support from people who have seen this. He's started an episode this evening. Nothing I can present at A&E yet, and it may pass. But I know from experience now that when he goes downhill, he goes fast. My GP surgery are really quick off the mark when they're open - obviously they try to avoid hospital admissions - but am I doing something wrong? Or not enough of something?
