ER visit for my son

The last two days have been hard on both me and my son. Due to how bad the air has been!!! But today my son woke up coughing and had a tight chest so he took his inhaler he said that it help just a little and only for about an hour and a half then he was tight again. We did this a few more times before he said it was getting tighter. So I took him in to the ER they did a treatment started him on a steroid and watched him for about 3 hours before sending us home. They said he had wheezing in all parts of his right lung with wheezing on the lower left side. So I was told to give him breathing treatments every 4 hours for the next 24 hours then move it to 6 or as needed depending on how he is doing. About an hour after leaving the ER he said he was feel way better which is great!!!! I hope he doesn't have to be feeling bad for two long!!! Poor thing was scared and there was a minute on the way to the hospital I was worried and I gave him more of his inhaler because it dose help a little. Even though it had only been an hour and a half.. Scary scary.

Re: ER visit for my son

Asthma attacks can really be scary. I hope your son is doing better.

He did good that night and into the afternoon then he ended up in the ER again they gave him a large volume treatment over an hour and then they watched him for 3 hours before they sent us home. He is good for now I hope it stays that way!

Re: ER visit for my son

I hope your air clears out some to help out as well. He has to be just miserable. Those ER trips are scary. I wish you both well.

I've had red air quality since after christmas. It is really hard on the lungs. I keep adding more meds with all that.
