First off let me just say thanks for all of your support and concern!!
Secondly, 3 of 4 of my children were diagnosed with asthma as babies. Their asthma always flared during a cold (which they had often because of daycare) we used flovent daily, and albuterol during flare ups. They were not recently diagnosed, and I am very educated about asthma. I know when my children NEED meds.
I was told by WIC that we needed the blood work because that is how they get their funding. I guess I was just trying to be helpful. Now that I know that I don't need it, I won't be going back to the doc unless the kiddies are very sick.
With the exception of DS2 (he had a flare up in Feb 08, was prescribed meds, which I didn't give him, and he recovered nicely) none of the children have had any flare-ups in well over a year!!
All of the kids are completely recovered, and we have not had a call from the nurse.
I really appreciate everyones support!!
