If you have more than one child, chances are that you will ended up with the others sick too. Of course, you dont expect this to happen when you are dealing with Ashtma, but oh well, it happened to us!
I noticed that Gaby wasn't breathing right last night, but I blamed it to being TOO HOT. This morning at around 11am I got a call from preschool side. One of those calls with bad news that I hate so much. It was the Principal to let me know that Gaby was having fast deep breathing. I asked her to check is she had wheezing, and she had.
When I saw her she was so bad that I didnt need to put my head on her back to hear the wheezing.. I could actually hear it from her open mouth while trying to breathe!!! She was even having intercostal retractions, and she was turning blue.
She got to the ER and after 2 nebulizations she was better. I cant even being to explain how scary it was!! She got released with a prescription and a nebulization treatment, but as I had Mia's follow up, I just took her in to her ped in the afternoon.
The good news are the Mia is released and medicine-nebulization free. She says that she is just fine, but that I need to take care of her as she were with a crisis, because she get sick again as she is still not 100% fine. For Gaby the ped asked me to nebulize her every 8 hours until Sunday morning, and to give her a call and let her know how she is by then. She prescribed her another medicine for the nebulization and she wont need to drink anything besides that.
Im really sad, as I just want my daughters to be fine... Is that too much to ask?

I hope both of them are feeling better soon. I am so sorry that they have to go through that.

Do they think it is asthma? It sounds to me more like RSV, especially since both girls got it.

Erica: It has been really difficult!

H: Yes, heartbreaking is the best way to describe it!

Nicole: Thanks! I hope too!

Cindy: I dont think it was more like a coincidence, because both girls had very different symptoms. I mean, Mia had something very similar to RSV, but Gaby not. Gaby didnt had any other symptoms: no cold, no fever, no stuffy nose, and it is not the first time that it happens to her (even though it is the first time that happens this bad, and the first time that happened to Mia)... But Gaby has some serious issues, and I even suspect that she has sleep apnea. Anyway, thank you very much for bringing that up, and I will mention it to the ped as soon as I talk to her. Who knows? Thanks again!!!
