Third grader in CT dies of asthma

A tragic reminder about this disease….this story caught my eye not only because of the circumstance but because I know Waterbury, CT well. It's a former industrial city that has seen better times – CT is a wealthy state, but Waterbury is low income.

    It is … I cannot imagine the pain her parents and family must be going through. School is the one place you hope that your child will be safe. I wonder … did she not have her inhaler? Were the staff not trained to help her? Did they not take her seriously? Or did they do everything right, and yet nothing helped?

    I do hope that they will address any training or response that can be improved, and I will definitely keep this family in my thoughts and prayers.
