Well, Kevin had another one last nite. Bad enough that he couldnt feel his face or arms. Last time it got that bad, it accelerated into tachychardia. That caused a heart attack. Of course we couldnt find his inhaler-it was in his jacket. He tried to ride his bike downtown to get milk for his sister's baby. (he's such a good brother) He wound up calling for a ride home, jumping out of a moving truck and basically having a panic attack within his asthma attack. It took 4 doses with his albuterol inhaler and a trip to the ER to get him calmed down. Today he is pale and sick and tired and all he wants to do is sleep. His whole body is sore. I don't understand why they can't come up with a way to get this under control. He has a heart condition, so steroids are off limits to him. HGH shots to stimulate growth of lungs are off limits for the same reason. He doesnt get to do any of the things boys are supposed to do because of this. What else can we do for him? He wants to hunt, but can't walk in the woods for very far without having an attack. He can't play sports or ride atv's or anything. Cold weather is the worst, so we have been really blessed with warm temps this year. He has a humidifier going in every room in the house to help prevent another infection like last year's. We have no carpet and sweep and vaccuum daily. His room is a pet free zone. The heater vents all have washable cheesecloth covers in them to capture dust and dander, etc. I am out of ideas how to help him and the doctors dont have any new ideas either. How can we get this under control so he can have a normal life? He is 16 and is tired of sitting around the house all the time.
