My little guy, Jacob, (my GS) is in the hospital for asthma! He has had problems with it for years (he is 10) and last night he was wheezing, so my daughter had him use his inhaler and Advair?? (the round thing)  and then he went to bed. Well I guess it got pretty bad during the night and he didn't wake her up! YIKES! He used his inhaler himself 3 times and then at 5:15AM or so when her alarm went off for work he came in and told her. She asked why didn't you wake me?! So in a few minutes they were on the way to the hospital ER and have been there ever since. He has a breathing treatment every 2 hours and has the oxygen thing in his nose (which he said is making his nose hurt and he wants to go home). They also gave him some steroids. I FEEL SO BAD FOR HIM AND WORRIED! His blood oxygen level is too low if he removes his nose thing, like 94 or so. They want it higher before they release him. SIGH sad   I hate seeing him struggle for air! Poor guy! Please say a prayer for him. He is my shining light! Thank you so much!

Your Jacob will be in my prayers. I know what you mean about a shining light I also have a grandson named Jacob who is 10 for a few more weeks. They are so precious. Let me know how he is doing. There is nothing harder then watching our grandchildren struggle. He is better off where he is for now and he will be home with you before you know it.
I will say a prayer for him.
Stay well

Prayers are coming his way and yours too.  Grandmothers  worry so much too.  I pray his breathing gets easier and he can take that nose thingy off.  It is bothersome. 

Let us know how he is doing.

Prayers for you, Jacob's mom and Jacob are on the way. I have first hand experience with this disease -- I can't tell you how many trips I made with my daughter to the ER between 5 and 10 years old. This asthma will get better and he will learn how to medicate himself correctly.  My daughter is 33 now and still having problems, doctor just added Advair to her Proventil and Singular.

Gail, sending prayers for "your little guy".  Good that he is in hospital and they are giving him treatment and watching over him.  And of course, sending a prayer with a hug for you.  Hugs, Libby

Prayers going up for you!  I understand. My grandson also has asthma.  I have seen him the same way. I understand completely.  It is hard and scary.  My grandson is 4 years old.  His name is Luke.  I will be remembering your little one when I do for Luke.

Hi Gayle
I sure hope this finds Jacob feeling better...It is so tough when our precious grandkids
are sick. I will keep him in my prayer.
Please give us an update.

Hi Gayle
My oldest son, who is now 31, struggled with asthma for several years. he improved dramatically once he hit puberty and is now in good control. My prayer for your family is that this will be be the case for Jacob. I will keep him in my prayers. Blessings.

Gail I am hoping Jacob is doing much better and you all are feeling better about him. I can't imagine watching a grandbaby try to get his breath. They are so precious and so special to us. Hugs for you all, MK

Gail, I'm late with my prayers but they'll work all the same.  Hope Jacob is home by now and on the mend.  It'll take grandma a little bit longer to feel well, I think.  If they had one little inkling about how much they mean to us.  On second thought it's probably better if they don't.  Thinking of you....hugs, Luci

Gail ,
Praying all is well with Jacob. Asthma can be such a scary thing. Let us know how he's doing.
