ASTHMA!

Good morning guys hope you are all having a brill start to Monday. Those who watch my vlogs and read my blogs know that my son had some breathing difficulties a few weeks ago and I had to take him to hospital. So following the hospital visit I had to take him to the doctors to do a follow up and they gave him a pick flow ( to check how strong his breathing is) and pump if his breathing plays up again and we were told that he should use this for the next two weeks and to write down the results of the before and after of using the pick flow and pump.

We did this for two weeks and took the results back to the doctors and today I got a call form the doctors saying he has Asthma!! I was like what? how? out of the blue?. Its something I did not think would come out of the results as his been fine since the hospital visit and he had a football match this Saturday gone and he was fine.

So now I have to tell him and explain to him what that means and to make sure he don’t panic about it because when he had the first breathing issue I think he began to panic ( which is understandable) that he could not breath but h was fine. I have read up on Asthma and apparently some kids grow out of it and I hope he does too.

Moral of the story, parenthood can be scary! and difficult but our parents done it in harder timeS so with a strong support system, we can do it too.

HE CANT’T BREATH!!!!

So I have MIA for a minute but I have been quite busy and being mummy. So Jerome has been having a rough few weeks, about 2 weeks ago i was called by the school that he was not feeling well and he could not breath!! now imagine hearing your baby could not breath!. ( prior to this about 3 weeks before he had a cold and was really stuffy to the point where he could not breath without waking himself up so I decided to sleep with him so I could keep an eye on him. I have never used albos and vicks in one night so much lol) So I rushed to pick him up and bless his little self his stomach and chest were literally moving up and down so much because he could not  breath and was struggling so I called the doctor to get an emergency appointment and to my surprise ( thinking about it now I was not surprised) they told me the next appointment they could give me was in 2 hours time!!! I was so pissed!!! I told them the boy cant breath and you want me to wait two hours??? i was so angry. At this point I called Steve to let him know whats going on and he left work to come with us to hospital.

So instead of waiting for my son to get worse I took him to A&E luckily it was not busy when we went in so they saw him quickly. They checked him and they said he might have asthma! or a viral infection, so they put him on a pump and oxygen to help him breath which started to help him. We were there for about 3 hours so Steve left to go pick up Faith form school. when we got discharged he was a lot better but you could still hear his breathing was raspy so they gave us a pump to use at home and was told to make an appointment to see our usual doctor for him to be diagnosed! which I felt was just one of the stupidest ideas, we were in a hospital!! why could they not diagnose him there??? anyway we went doctors and they said the same thing as the hospital that they thought it was asthma or viral infection (well duh tell me something new).

The doctor gave him antibiotic tablets to take for 3 days and a breath tester to see how strong his breathing is and we have been using that for the last few weeks and he seems to be back to normal ( thank God!). Motherhood can be so hard and scary but his on the mend. đŸ™‚
