Hi Everyone — we have our follow-up visit with my toddler daughters Pulmonologist tomorrow 2ish months after her hospitalization. I am making a list of questions but wondering if any parents/patients can help me out with anything I may be missing?
- She was not meeting her goals due to consistent sickness (month of August, Sept has been better) – is there anything else we can do at night during a cold? (when she seems to have the most trouble) ie. for coughing, also she has seemed very hoarse or dried out at times when the weather gets colder at night (I also have the same reaction) but it’s not cold in the house at night. What can we do to minimize this?
- What Oxygen # should be our alert number telling us she needs to be headed to hospital? this was unclear to me.
- Can we have/should we have a peak flow meter for Lexi? I have read these devices can help detect narrowing in your airways hours, or even days, before you feel symptoms.
- She seems to have increased tantrums and mood issues on Singulair. Is there any other similar medicine we can try that may have less side effects?
this is all new to us as parents, and we havent experienced a Fall season yet so any questions I should add that I may need to know going forward would be MUCH appreciated!
