Tuesday Keira's breathing got progressively worse throughout the day. She was continuously wheezing and not improving after her inhaler. She was also getting a little short of breath while talking. She did have a cold so I'm guessing that's what triggered the asthma attack. Mike took her to the ER in the evening and they gave her several nebs and a course of oral steroids. She was supposed to take the steroids twice a day but they made her very wound up and she had a hard time sleeping so we now just give them once in the am. I spoke to her asthma doc and she is going to go back on her inhaled steroids early. ( She usually only takes them Sept-April). So instead of waiting till the cooler weather arrives in Sept we will be started her inhaled steroids in a few days after she is done with the oral ones.
It was her first trip to the Er and she had a grand time. Mike took her while I stayed home to put Israel to sleep. When they got back she excitedly told me about how she got apple juice AND a Popsicle. How she got to watch a princess movie and got lots of princess stickers. And of course she showed me her bracelet with her name on it. She had a grand time. We are all glad to see her breathing has much improved.
