Oh Ouch :~(
Oh dear, now we have done asthma properly :~( Well not properly in an HRH or rush someone to hospital in an ambulance fashion, but quite well enough thank you very much. I sat up with Ammi all night and she only drifted off to sleep between 2 and 3.30ish. When she woke up again she was far worse and for the first time the cough out was accompanied by a wheeze in as well. 8 doses of ventolin and some piriton later and things didn’t seem to be improving at all, so i gave in and took her to the all-night walk in place (a small advantage of living in a city!)
I’ll never quite understand the rule that means that this ALWAYS effects a 50% recovery in said child but she definitely was a good bit better by the time we got there. But i guess nurses and so on see that all the time and were very nice about it, had a good listen and agreed a doctor needed to see her. Who duly came along and said that as things seemed to be improving they wouldn’t do a nebuliser but gave me some soluble steroids for her if it got worse. Which it duly did the moment we got home again. Still, she seems to be on the up now… honestly, KIDS!
