Anyone else go through this? My son has been sick for over a month but has rapidly got worse over the past 3 days I took him to the doc again today and his oxygen level was at 90 they immediately gave him a nebulizer treatment that brought his oxygen level to 93 gave him a double dose of prednisone and wrote a prescription for a inhaler he has to take twice a day untill they say otherwise. He had rsv at one month old and said it damaged his lungs so he probably has asthma, anyone else go through this. How did your one yr old do?

Chloe had Bronchiolitis over her first birthday. They did a neb treatment at the Dr's, then sent us home with an inhaler. OMG...it was a fight, everytime. We would even 'practice' when she had her paci and was calm...didn't matter, take away the paci & actually attempt to use the inhaler, it was traumatizing for us all!

My dd was on one for almost a month when she was 7-8 months old. It was so hard, she was taking it 4 times a day and had 2 different kinds to take. She never really got any of it ever, cause she fought so hard as soon as it went on her face.

And screamed her head off. I could not hold her with one hand and hold it on her face with the other hand and press it down. lol Every so often I had help doing it but not much.
