When my son was born, he was a strong 9lb 6oz baby boy! We never imagined he'd be struggling from the age of 4-on to breathe...diagnosed at 5 with Asthma in an emergency room after a life-threatening attack. He is now 11 and continues to strive for a normal life. We have recently been struggling with trying to go to school in winter weather. He tries, and each week he ends up wheezing, coughing, turning pale, headache and feeling the tightening in his chest. His peak flow dips deep into the yellow zone and hovers above the red. So each week, we stay home...its been almost 3-weeks! Any suggestions? He takes Advair 250/50 2-times a day & has had to use his albuterol inhaler several times/day since this cold snap has begun. I am in contact with his specialist who put him on an antibiotic last week "just in case anythings lurking" like a sinus infection. I feel like I'm spinning my wheels!!! What else can I do? Has anyone else just had to stay-in or keep a child in ALL winter long?
