I took my daughter to the pediatrician today because I thought she may have strep-throat. My sister, my niece, and my mom all have it and they really only had a cough. It's really been going around here bad. Well, anyways, my daughter has asthma, although the peds won't call it that until she's 5 because there are no tests for toddlers to see if they really have it. She has had a cough for over a month. It was so bad last night. She coughed all night long. Her asthma doesn't show up as wheezing.....it is only a cough (mainly at night and when she runs around). Well, the doctor we saw today said she had the exact same kind when she was a kid and remembers how horrible it can be. She said these kids get overlooked and misdiagnosed all too often. The persistent cough really is wheezing, but you just can't hear it. She said she had it all her life and it was never diagnosed until she was 16 years old. How aweful is that?? Well anyways, up until now, we have just used a nebulizer to give my daughter breathing treatments, but we were having to use it way too much last winter. Since my daughter is now 2, the doctor said we can now try Singulair (which is a daily tablet to regulate it better). I am so so glad. I was having to take her in to the doctor about once every month and a half last winter to get her meds for the nebulizer refilled because we had to use them so much. They are very expensive too! This is going to be so much better. Say a prayer that it works. This will make our lives so much better. We have been through everthing before they finally figured out what was wrong with her. They told us it was just a cold first, then walking pneumonia, (with 2 rounds of antibiotics) before they got it right. Hallelujia!!!
