My son will be 3 in February and has been diagnosed with asthma :( the day this happened, I thought I was going to loose him… You see my son is a very loud active child and loves his food but he is also pale skinned like his mummy :) He woke up one Wednesday and seemed to be very chesty and wheezy I didn’t think much of it as he just recently had bronchitis and a tonsillitis… But as the morning progressed he became quiet and very sookie… It wasn’t until he said no to food (even chocolate and iceblocks) that I realised something was really wrong… Called around trying to find a friend with a ventolin puffer, but no luck…. I then realised we had to go to hospital.. Due to my son being so white I barely noticed him going blue/grey around the mouth :( (plz keep an eye on this if its happening to your child) he was not getting enough oxygen at all… Quickly rushed him to the hospital and within 3 hours I had my son back.. Well so I thought.. I had him all healthy and able to breathe again but I also had a crazy psyco!! Lol as they have him prednisone which I didn’t know makes you hyper and hungry… Which I didn’t really mind as it was a great difference to what he was like that morning.. It was a relief to see him running around like a 2 yr old should be… Him climbing up and down the rails of the bed at hospital going ” I’m a punky, ooo ahhhhhh ooo, I’m a Punky” (punky-monkey) was the most classic example of what a difference being able to breathe can make..

  • How scarey glad he is ok


  • What a frightening experience. Glad he’s back to being a little monkey.


  • You and your son must have been so frightened. How is he doing now?


  • Hope you and your son are managing well after that scary asthma episode.


  • Very scary experience. Lucky you realised and got him to hospital. As a mu of two kids with asthma, winter is always a bit scary for me a a simple cold can become very serious very quickly. A preventer can make all the difference. Good luck with your son and try to educate yourself about how to deal with it as bet you can and always call an ambulance if its gets serious.


  • oh goose bumps that would have been sacry seems he wasnt to bothered by it
