Yesterday I took Jaclyn into the doctor to get her cough checked out. She has had a cold for a week and a half and for the last four days she has had a nasty cough and been having a hard time breathing. So I took her in to make sure everything was OK.
Well my doctor told me that Jaclyn has Asthma. I am not surprised after all I have asthma, David has had asthma since he was about nine months old and now Jaclyn has it. When she got sick a year ago with bronchitis the doctors told me then that they could see signs of asthma.
I now have two kids with Asthma.
Jaclyn has to have her puffer three times a day for the next little while and then I will be able to cut it back and have her use it when she is having a hard time breathing. Right now I am struggling with her as I get her to take her puffer. I am hoping in time that she will be better with taking it after all she sees her brother taking the same thing.
I really dislike asthma and wish that it was not a part of our lives!
It's really hard as a mother to hear your kids struggling with breathing!
