My lb is 3 almost 4 and has been hospital with croup and a viral wheeze. They aren't diagnosing him with asthma which I understand but I was just looking for some support really.
He's had 3 lots of steroids dexomethasone and (so far) one dose of prednisolone and has a blue inhaler on a wheeze management plan.
We are on day 5 of the wheeze. Day 2 of the management plan and apart from him not coughing at night I'm not seeing an improvement. His oxygen levels in hospital went from 93 to 97. But back home (we have a pulseox meter they've been 93 even after the inhaler. The hospital say his resps are fine. His breathing rate is about 32 bpm.
I guess I feel like he should be showing some signs of improvement by now. We have a brown preventer inhaler to start him on from Thursday.
This has all been a massive learning curve and quite scary.
I just want him to be better.
