Hey Angry Asthma Mama,
I found your blog awhile back and have been coming here now and then. I can relate with much of what you talk about, especially your anxiety when the kids are coughing. I have a two-and-a-half year old son who has never been officially diagnosed with asthma but instead "reactive airway disease." Last night I only slept 2.5 hours because Bubba was coughing so bad I was afraid he'd stop breathing or something. We nebbed him at 3 a.m. and it seemed to do the trick, but jeez...

I'd love to ask you some questions since I feel like I'm kind of a beginner in this whole at what point do I take him to a pulmonologist vs. the regular ped? When and how does he get officially diagnosed with asthma? What about allergy testing--when is it recommended? I never feel confident in deciding whether or not to do you decide? Stuff like that. Feel free to email me if you like--my address is on my blog.

Thanks for your site...I look forward to combing through your archives over the next few days/weeks!
