FWTW my daughters have asthma, the older two, but if you look in their charts or ask a medical professional they will not call it asthma. They'll call it any number of things but not that. it's a hard lable to shed once it's there.

she was probably told RSV and pneumonia (as a small child/baby) are strong indicators of having it, or developing it as they get older. and you might not hear the wheezing, my middle daughter has it the worse and I NEVER hear her wheeze, but she has other signs/symptoms.

Hopefully it's not that, but if it is the medicines will help greatly.

O has never had any symptoms or complaints. She says she gives him puffs from HER inhaler on days with high allergy warnings. He's never complained of chest pain.

Eric said he had rsv, but NEVER had pneumonia. And the timeframe that she claims he had it was when they were still together.

He was on a breathing treatment 3x a day for 3 months, and she says it was for the first 3 years of his life.

She, for some reason, likes to over exaggerate anything he has.

At the game on Saturday, he was favoring one leg. He asked the coach for a break and took his shoe off. We didn't rush over because he wasn't in pain, he just needed to keep weight off it. She said, "I hope it's not a sprain, I hope he would tell me if it was that bad." He was RUNNING, if his ankle was sprained, he would not be running.

When the game ended, she grabbed him, practically carried him back to her chair, took BOTH his shoes off, and shushed everyone while she "checked him out." She sat there for 5 minutes wondering why he was in pain. Checking every bone in his foot and ankle. Bend your foot this way, that way etc.

"I just know know what could be causing this pain. Are we going to have to get you X-Rayed?"

I lean forward, look at O, say, "O, were you and your friends kicking each other in the shin guards again today?"

"Yes."

"Did someone accidentally kick your ankle?"

"Yeah."

"Is that when your ankle stared hurting?"

"Yup."

"You'll be fine."

Why do kids do that? I did that as a kid when I played soccer. It was like "look it's protective equipment let's test it!". Kids...

We always tested new shin guards.. you went to your most trusted friend and asked for a pair of kicks. If you ended up yowling, your guards went back. Sometimes you'd see us kicking each other IN THE STORE.

But we were a lot older


And yeah, it seems like she wants something to be wrong with him. She can send those vibes this way, we know something's wrong with Reme.. but someone who shall remain unnamed thinks we're wrong.

Somehow persistent cough in a 7 year old that makes him sound like a smoker just doesn't seem normal.

I keep an eye out on my kids breathing, especially the boys, since both DH and I have asthma. Thankfully, mine is mild and his is even milder, but still. It's something I worry about. However, I would never ever ever medicate my kid with puffs of my inhaler. That's just flat out dangerous.

The thing that irks me is she claims he has all this but never backs it up.

He has asthma? Okay fine. take him to the Dr and prove it, or SHUT UP about it. You know? You cant just claim your kid has something that only a Dr can diagnose just because you are halfway through your AA in nursing.

If she suspects he has every illness in the book it would not bother me as much as it does that she does nothing about it. Or that she medicates him with HER medicine. Isn't that like rule number one of being a nurse? lol

ETA- I suspect she does it to have more of a need to "take care" of him. Like, my baby is sick, he needs me. Because the reality is that he needs us, Eric and I included, a lot less than he did 2 years ago. It makes me sad that I dont have to pour the milk in his cereal any more. I'm sure his mom takes it a lot harder. He is her ONLY child. She isn't having more. I have a while second kid to raise after we get married.
