as both my husband and me have asthma we knew before our first child was born there was a 60% chance they he would have it .30% for each parent .when we found out he had it the dr. then informes us that any other children we would have had a 80% chance of having asthma because of a sibling having it.my oldest son and the baby has asthma and they both have it pretty bad,the specialist is trying to organise a 6 week re-hab for them but it is getting the ok from the medical insurance.
at the moment the older son is on viani forte 2 times a day,in the morning and night and salbutomol 4 times a day.(bith taken with the chamber)we also have pumicort and rectadolt always on hand for emergencies.he has just finished a corse of perdnison.he has been hospital 27 times with it and 25 of them times have been touch and go.one time i actually thought he was dead(a bit of me died that day)luckily we were in hospital with the specialst when it happened and one of the nurses picked him up and run to the intesive with him.i will never forget this feeling of blank fear and emptiness that came over me.it happened 3 years ago and it still scares me and has left me with a lot of issues.the middle son seems to be spared thoug he has other things to make up for it.but the specialist says he could always get it when he is older.the baby now 8 months old is really ill at the moment with it,he has been since he was about 8 weeks old. at the moment he is on 6 drops of salbutomol,4 times a day in the pari boy.supramylase 1 teaspoon 3 times a day and alergosonewhich has a betamethasone base 1 time a day 90 drops.the drīs are a bit worried about him at the moment because he is going blue in what they call the triangle every now and then.all three of my children have nerodermititus and problems with the heart.the oldest also has high graded food allergies hay fever,enlarged kidney ,stigmas in both eyes and hearing problem.the middle son has what is classed as lbk.a lebens bedrohlich krankiet which translated into english is a life threatening desiese but they donīt know what it is.they know what it isnīt,by what they have ruled out but donīt know what it is.when he was younger he was on a heart monitor with oxygen monitor for 16 months as his oxygen level used to go below 60% for no reason and he was always going blue.sometimes it is a struggle especially if they are all ill together.having said that a couple of times when the kids have been in together the hospital has put them in the same room together so i could be by them both.and then when zakariya went home first ayyub then got moved to the ward he should have been on.they had very kindly lent one of thier heart monitors to zakariyaīs ward so they could be together.other times i have had to fight to get the kids together in the same ward.sorry didnīt mean to write a book.it is sometimes hard once you get started.it is nice to have people who knows what you are going through.it also makes you realise what your own parents went through with you and you apprieciate them more.
