Oliver's Asthma

Poor Oliver. His allergies have been awful this spring and I am cursing my love of all of those warm winter days. Last week was our spring break, so we spent a lot of time outside taking walks and playing in the yard. I think all of that fresh air was simply too much for him. He woke up Friday at 3am wheezing. After 2 nebulizer treatments and a call to our pediatrician, we ended up taking him to the ER. They were quick to get him into a room and evaluated. He was incredibly wheezy, so they gave him an hour long treatment and oral steroids. He was still tight, so they repeated the process and then sent us home. We have had to give him breathing treatments every 4 hours and continue the steroids. He is doing so much better. Now to find a good local allergist to help us put an allergy/asthma plan together.
