i had to wake up early today to drive her to work because she is sick and her asthma was acting up and she could not make it to work on her own but insisted on going after i asked her to stay home a million times.. so i brought her and went back home and at 11:30 am when i was dropping my daughter off at school i got a phone call fromn my wifes coworker (a good friend) that my wife needed me to pick her up and take her home to use her nebulizer (asthma treatment) and when we got home 15 minutes later i could hear her weazing very bad so i asked her to let me take her to the emergency room and she said no she cant miss more then 2 day of school or she will be automaticaly failed. ( she has'nt missed a day yet in 5 years) so i tell her ok fine ill take you to school at 5 pm.. it was only 12 noon. so by the time i had to bring her to school i noticed she was 100 times worse and her asthma pump was not working nor was the oxygen tank i keep on stand ny for an emegency when the ambulance takes too long.
so i told her to get her book bag ready and i drove her straight to the emergency room with out her knowing
and i told her to go insde and if they say you are fine then ill take you to school.. so she got out the car before i did and took 1 step and almost fell, she had to grab the car door
so i jumped out and helped her sit back in the car. then i grabbed the kids and helped her inside and they said im lucky i broght her in when i did as her lungs were closing up lil by lil and she must have felt like she was breathing thru a coffee straw
so they gave her a shot of prednisone ( lung steriods) and siad lets wait 15 minutes. well that did not work so they hooked her up to the oxygen and they asked me to take the kids home as they had to run a heart and lung test as well as some others and take some blood. so i went home and went back 2 hours later and they said she is doing the same and breathing very badly. they told me to go back home with the kids and get some rest. (rest who'* tired, im worried about my wife) so she said they have to do some more test and then they will be bringing her to another hospital for asthma apecialist to keep an observation on her untill tomorrow
wow im so worried i dont know what to think.. she had asthma her whole life and i had to wake up several time at 3 in the morning to rush her to the ER but it has NEVER been this bad.,. she almost turned blue in the face.... im very worried.....
