GREAT NEWS!!!

Whew! Today has been a busy one with much running around. And it's not over. The JV Football end of the season dessert is tonight... as well as equipment check in. Of course, the brownies I made have all stuck to the pan which means we'll be stopping at the store for another dessert on our way. UGH!!!

Anyway, guess what?!?! Double Shot had a lung check this morning. Last summer his lung function went down to 69% and they've been having us go in every 4 weeks to keep an eye on things. I became the medication Nazi but we hadn't been able to get his lung function out of the 70's. Last month they added the med Singulair. His lung function was 97% this morning!!! He has NEVER in his LIFE had lung function that high! AND if it is still in that range in 4 weeks they are going to reduce his Advair dose. AND if his numbers are still good 4 weeks after that... they are going to take him OFF of the Advair!!! He has been on Advair since he was 11 years old! We are thrilled beyond words!

Gotta RUN!!!

Sounds like someone is getting a new iPod with the pharmaceutical savings. Breathing is good.

Wow, I'm happy that the meds are working. but BE CAREFUL with Singulair... my daughter was on that for asthmas and it worked wonders, but then she started not sleeping, and being really cranky, and finally she went crying to her teacher when questioned and said she was having nightmares. They were making her lose sleep because she was scared to go to sleep. I researched it on the net after she told me that and it is a side effect... just watch his sleep and moods... hopefully its just in younger children, but my kiddo was 5 when this happened...

Yeah Double Shot! I'll bet it makes a big difference for him - being able to breathe easier, etc.

I hope things continue to look up for him.

I also hope that you get to eat the brownies even though they stuck to the pan!
