She is good now. just on controllers for asthma, which omg has made the difference in our daily lives. :) She has a whole asthma team now and we have a whole check list to see if she needs to go to the ER and if she does we have to ask them to just give her a breathing treamtent, steroid, call the ambulance and then be transferred.

i don't usually just... jump to take him to the ER. he had stomach pain bad enough to be doubled over + that a high of a fever at 3am, there wasn't much else i felt was right to do at that point. wasn't going to let him sit in pain and not know why!
but thank you. he'll see his doc tomorrow.
