My son has asthma. He has it so severe he can't even even run around like a normal kid. He has an asthma attack after constantly jumping up and down. He was in the hospital right before Christmas. And it hurts to know that I can't fix it. I can't make this "monster" go away. I see Ash suffer so much, and the thing that hurts the most is seeing him with his little mask on, laughing, and then coughing because he can't even laugh. So we went to his pulmonologist today, and they tell me to give him his Flovent inhaler, his singulair, and on top of that nebulizer treatments every three hours. The pharmacist tells me that this is waay too much stimulants and he could go into cardiac arrest if I follow doctors orders. I dont know what to do. His little heart is already pumping so hard from having to keep up with his shallow breathing. I don't know. Everyone quit smoking, we gave up the dog, weve cleaned the house from top to bottom, done everything within our power to rid of anything that could possibly trigger his asthma, and its getting worst. And to top everything, my son's father and family refuse to give their family history. His doctors say its necessary to have this info so they can treat him properly and test him for any possible diseases... and whatnot. They don't know where to start. Ive begged and pleaded. They refuse. I dont know what to do. If I dont do what the doctor says, my son could stop breathing or I could get in trouble for not folowing orders. If I do, my son could die from cardiacarrest. What the hell am I supposed to do? I am completely helpless, and more-so, my son Ash is.
