my 23 month old got sick from me (i feel so horrible about it!) yesterday and woke up with a nasty cough yesterday morning. so i gave her a breathing treatment (borderline asthmatic) and the coughing went away for the day. she has a once daily preventer treatment as well but it's obviously not doing it's job because this morning she was wheezing slightly, retracting slightly, and had a low-grade fever. right away she had a treatment, and was fine for a couple of hours. she has to wait 4 hours between treatments, but started coughing again within three and retracting. she's doing it now in her sleep. waiting for on-call doctor to see if i should take her to the er but it's been an hour and no response! the picu nurse didn't have a shred of advice for me. question is should they go to the er with any sign of retracting or just really bad retractions?
