Dd traumatized the admins at school yesterday!

Back story, a couple of years ago, my dd's friend passed away from sudden death caused my his asthma. It was right before Christmas and it was just awful. We all still miss his smiling face.

Well, Dd also has asthma and she had the worst asthma attack of her life yesterday at school. She couldn't breathe and had a hard time taking her rescue inhaler. The principal herself called me at home and I headed right up there with instructions to call 911 if she started turning blue or passed out. Thankfully, she was able to get in some rescue meds and I was able to just bring her home. I then put her in the bathroom with the door shut and the shower on high heat for the steam. This loosened up her chest considerably and I also pushed fluids all night because she was dehydrated.

She is doing much better today and went back to school. The principal emailed me in the middle of the night to check on her and then checked on her throughout the day. I love their small school and the family atmosphere they have.

Asthma SUCKS. I hate it
I'm sorry about her friend, very traumatizing. :(

I'm glad she is OK. And what a great school she is at. They handled that extremely well and it is nice to see such care given to the students.

So scary! I'm very glad to hear her school takes it seriously!

My sister has asthma and, prior to quitting for many reasons, was a college cheerleader. Her coach one time told her to "cut the dramatic breathing" and keep running. People don't often give asthma the credit it deserves for being as deadly as it can be!

Yeah, her basketball coach last year said that to her once and I question quickly disabused him of that notion.

How sweet the school cares! My son was med flighted to the hospital in picu and when I called the school they were like "okay I'll tell his teacher he won't be in" granted he was a new student but they literally had no empathy. Even when I emailed the teacher for makeup work no one had told her. She got the class to make cards. The office still didn't say shit when I wine to pick up his work.

She has been hospitalized 5 times in her life with twice being at this school. They always send her cards and work to get her caught up on missing work. It is a K-8 school that has about 400 students. Everyone knows pretty much everyone and I am there a lot so they all know me by my first name.
