My 8 year old has been so bad lately. She has had to use her inhaler at least 4 times a day. Saturday I bet she had 3 attacks. Last Friday I thought I was going to have to calla medic for her. I just don't get it. She is on the same track my son used to be on , each month she is put on Orapred for 14 days then it makes her better wears off and she is sickl again. We ended up in Denver at a hospital for my son adn now he is on Xolair doing wonderful. The doctor seems to think Xolair would be best for my daughter but it will take up to 3 months to get it cleared through the insurance and we have the whole summer ahead of us. I hate seeing her this way, she looks so helpless. Then she panics as soon as she knows she is really tight , she panics and you have to talk her through it. She said she has been using her inhaler at school more too. I wonder what is going on . I just wish they could get in a mode where once in a blue moon they needed the inhaler. It hurts me to watch them go through this. My asthma has been bad too but I can deal I hate seing her deal.
