quick update & prayer request

I’ll be missing a few more days as we try and regroup from my youngest being hospitalized the last several days. Again. Three times in fifteen months and the physicians are labeling asthma as the culprit :: hesitant because they normally wait until a child is over the age of five to make a final diagnosis.

Given our son’s issues and the severity of the out-of-the-blue and no warning major attacks that he’s experienced, we’ve received a mini-class on asthma from the respiratory therapist and a boatload of information and thoughts about meds. He’s on a few now because it’s necessary, but I’ve already started researching how to combat this a bit more naturally as much as possible. I am grateful for modern medicine and yet also want to allow our son’s little body to heal without so many side effects. Daunting indeed given his condition….

Be back soon. Please pray for grace, healing for Josiah, strength, and wisdom.

{by the way, any information is appreciated!}

    Oh wow so sorry to hear about the little one’s health troubles.

    I would consider elimating cow’s milk from his diet as much as possible and being sure he gets plenty of water.

    Hope he feels better soon.ReplyCancel

    Josiah is in my prayers as well. I would echo Yolanda’s suggestion to eliminate dairy products to see if that helps.ReplyCancel

    Josiah and your family are in our prayers. We have had our fair share of issues with this in the past. (The breathing treatments and late night ER visits)

    As you know each child is different and have different triggers/allergies that lead to asthma.

    But we did the basics:
    -We have eliminated dairy and gluten this year.
    -Upgraded our home air filters.
    -Got rid of carpeting in his bedroom/closet.
    -All pillows and matteress are encased in allergy barrier covers.
    -No shoes are worn in the house, tracking in outside pollens.
    -He changes cloths immediately after coming inside from play.
    -Nightly nasal saline rinse to remove dusties from passage way.
    -Got rid of all but one stuff animal and it is an asthma bear.
    -keep his hair cut low

    I hope he feels better soon…ReplyCancel

    Thanks ladies for the prayers! Josiah already has all dairy & milk proteins eliminated from his diet because he's seriously allergic. All of my other kiddos didn't have dairy until about age 4, so it's a part of our lives. Thanks for the other tips Mom Guide.ReplyCancel

    So sorry to hear about the asthma. I had asthma growing up and two of my children have struggled with it. We’ve tried putting some colloidal silver in the nebulizer (you may have to google it) and within a few days that seemed to help.

    I’m sure you’re doing humidifiers (depending on the trigger of asthma).

    I focused on strengthening their immune system to deal with the triggers, so I gave the kids Sambucol (elderberry) and grapefruit seed extract in their orange juice.

    A friend of mine says the most relief her children get from their asthma is with the chiropractor. We tried it and it didn’t do much for us. But it might be worth a try.
