So, today, I spent the morning in the clinic trying to figure out the nebulizer. Rachel cried and ran away, and here I was trying to chase after her while holding out the nebulizer mask. It was probably a funny site, although not necessarily funny to me at the time. My mom and I finally got her to take a nebulizer treatment, with limited time running away and no crying(!), by having her give the treatment to her doll. But I think I got just as much of the medicine as she did!
She needs a treatment every night before going to bed, and then every four hours during the day as needed (definitely before she goes out to play, and if she starts wheezing). So, I guess it'll become a pretty big part of our life.
I guess my question is, does anyone else have a child with asthma? I tried looking for a support site on the Web and haven't come up with much luck yet. I'd like to have a couple people just to help answer questions when they come up, and for general support.
