This gets right back to my previous post. If things are bad, call an ambulance. Treatment starts as soon as the crew arrives. Sometimes people make the mistake of thinking they can get a person to the hospital faster by private vehicle. This can ultimately just delay immediate interventions. I'm sure the hospital will get this figured out. There can be a lot of causes for an exacerbation like you described. My thoughts are with your family.

Brian'* a great guy but I don't see a single post from him and I'm curious as to what he did?

I think your wife is nuts for signing herself out. I'd be worried sick...

You have my sympathies and prayers that they both get better and quick.

o.k well my daughter was sent home with prednisone.(steriods) and a nebulizer machine of her very own. doctors say she can return to school monday

and my wife is still the same and not getting any better from what i see.. i had to pick her up early from work again today because she could not breath after walking down the hall to the bathroom. so now she is home and in bed for the last 5 hours bossing me around because she can only brewth o.k when she stays perfectly still.

so now im here waiting on her and 2 kids hand and foot and its geting out of hand.. my wife is abusing her asthma pump as it is not working and she is all pumped up on steriods and her heart is racing a mile a minute.

so i keep trying to convince her to go back to the hospital but she is too damn hard headed for a girl that is only 5 foot 2'' tall and 150 pounds wet..(she is spanish )
so with this said i up for a weekend of hell i see as she will not go back to the doctor i might have to rush her at 3 or 4 am to the ER again.. well i dont know what else to do..?

Sorry to hear about the misses and the daughter.
Awhile back I remember you posting pictures of the ceiling in one of the rooms in your house -it has been sagging from rain. IIRC there might've been some mold. You may want to check this out as that may have been the cause for setting the wife and daughter off, and with them returning this could very well cause far more devastating problems if not checked into/corrected.

Best wishes,
Martin

i honestly did not even think about that as that particular room is on the 3rd floor across from my daughters playroom. it stay shut and locked all the time as i am going to turn it into my wife'* study.

but yeah it was a new ceiling that was put up 2 months before we moved in but the roof was not done right so it leaked right thru with the first heavy rain right after i moved in. so even tho i had the old owner have a new roof put on correctly by a licensed roofer i am still fighting with him to pay to get the ceiling replaced again.

so its about 4 months old now but it is probally soaked up there still due to the mositure inbetween the walls and ceilings..

so even with the door closed woulkd it be hat strong as to affect them if they were in the next room across.?

thanks

I'm no expert on mold, but it can expand fairly quick. It is fairly possible the mold could have grown on the attic side of the ceiling across the hallway. If that happening it could be a very unwanted 'silent intruder'. Best bet is to put a face mask on (a light duty one at least, two if you don't mind) and climb up there with a flash light -tread carefully.... the water damage may significantly weakend the wood, etc...
