…Aaron has it.
Both my mom and I have been saying for ages that we
think know Aaron has asthma.
My brother Matt has asthma, in fact he has severe asthma and my mom is pretty much an expert.
The doctors, not so much.
They kept diagnosing him with upper respiratory infections.
A few weeks ago Aaron started coughing so badly that he would eventually vomit. After almost a week of this we had an appointment to see a paediatric pulminlogist. I was very sick that day so my amazing mom took Aaron. Probably a good thing as the doctor knows her and my brother, he treated him as a child and my mom is quite, insistent when she wants something done, namely a proper diagnosis.
The bottom line is that Aaron has asthma. He went on to a hectic week long medicine schedule that included 12mg a day of cortisone. He is now stable and on a daily dose of asthma meds that keeps his coughing under control.
He is like a different child.
Also, my 4 year old (almost 5!!) can do the asthma spray all by himself. And he reminds me if I havent given it to him. Im so proud of my big boy.
