sunnylady303 Posted October 1, 2012 Share Posted October 1, 2012 I am sitting here in the ER with DD8 who can. not. breathe. Can't get out a complete sentence. O2 stats are 93. But she is clamped down so tight that she isn't wheezing anymore and the RT who came in is all "she's moving good air." Teehee. No she really isn't. I wish they would train RT's that sometimes, when kids airways get tight enough, they stop wheezing. We have had this problem before with my other daughter. I'm not stupid. I know when my child isn't moving air. Plus you can ask her - she's 8. Then she does a peak flow - where my DD can't even move the needle and is all - "she isn't doing it right." She does this daily and always moves the needle. It isn't moving cause she can't breathe, not because she's doing it wrong. If I don't see a doctor - an intelligent, observant doctor - soon, I may scream. That is all. Just needed to spew my frustration somewhere.
