Prayer Request

Please pray for our family.

Scout (who has asthma) has very rapidly come down with a cough, some shortness of breath (not extreme, but enough to require Albuterol nebulizer), congestion and a fever.

He has been to the doc and is on the full regimen: antivirals, antibiotics, steroids... I have isolated him to his bedroom. Of course, he will have Nurse Mom quite close to him at all times.

6 years ago, the Princess (also asthmatic) was hospitalized with complications of the seasonal flu. Please pray that she will not get it.

Also, with my new asthma diagnosis I am praying not to get it either. The hospital just got the H1N1 vaccine in 24 hours ago and started shot clinics today. I hope to go in tomorrow and get mine. Only peds and ob nurses are eligible at this time at our institution.

Thanks for your prayers.

I will pray for his health and the help of your family. I have severe asthma, I know what he is going through. Poor guy. Take care & God Bless.

Will be praying for your son and everyone (including you!) in your family. My best friend's son always ends up in the ICU with his asthma each winter under "normal" circumstances.....she is terrified about him catching this nasty flu as well.

I will put my trust in The Great Physician and believe He is watching over you guys.

Hope everyone stays healthy this year and forever. These bugs are getting awful. We have an infirmary in our house right now, but we do not have underlying conditions such as asthma. Please take good care of yourselves...

Praying for all your family and you!!! I have many of the same fears with 2 of 3 of my children being asthmatic. I hope everyone is okay fairly quickly!

OF course! I will be praying.

I will pray for all of you. But please, don't worry to much. 4 of the 6 of us have asthma and we have all gotten the flu at one time or another. Just stay on top of the meds and all will be OK.
