My nephews can't breathe and I'm worried UPDATED IN REPLIES

My sister lives in Oklahoma, two of her sons have pretty bad Asthma and are struggling to breathe. She is giving them another breathing treatment along with her husband and then she is taking all three to the ER again. It's unlikely they won't be admitted this time. They've been in and out all week and weekend and it's just gotten too bad. She has two other children, hasn't slept, and is very stressed out.

I want to go help her, but I can't because I am taking care of our mother, who can't be left alone. 

I feel so terrible for her. If you could send up a prayer or good thoughts, I would really appreciate it. My one nephew is really, really bad, he can hardly breathe at all.

Thanks. I'm staying up in order for her to have someone to call if she needs too. So I'm ready for a really long night. I keep praying but they all keep getting worse.

Praying for them! I hope they are able to get their asthma under control very soon! Asthma is a scary thing!! I have adult onset asthma..and bad attacks scare me. I couldn't imagine having to deal with it as a child! =(  I hope they feel better soon!!

There is no mold in her house. Her husband is too severe. It's the barometric pressure in Oklahoma causing the problem right now, according to their doctor.
