Tanner was dx'd with asthma at the age of 13 mos old. He is now 22 months old. We have mold in the house (we rent an apt.) and he has recently been exposed to Croup. He's got a really bad cough and his Xopenex treatments aren't working as well as they normally do. I called his dr yesturday when the cough presented and they have no appts. til the end of next week. Is an ER trip warrented or should I WIO and try agian on Monday?

I would suggest a trip to he ER. Especially since you have MOLD in the apartment. That can be very dangerous and he could have some serious complications.
 
I would recommend a trip to the ER and have him checked out.
 
Here's hoping the best for you.

I second Andrew, I too think that a trip to the ER is in order. Children of that age can go downhill fast in a blink of an eye so it's best to be safe then sorry.

As an asthma patient myself, I would definitely take him to the ER.  Even at 56 years old, I can go from 0 to 10 just over night, meaning I can go to bed feeling fine and somehow by the next morning I not only need my nebulizer, but also Prednisone and antibiotics.
 
If you ever have a life threatening situation with him, call an ambulance.  They can work with him on the way to the hospital, you don't have to wait to fill out all the paper work before he can be seen and it just might save his life.  You won't have to answer any questions when you get to the hospital or go through different chains of commands before he can be seen.  It's a lot different than when you take the patient there by car.
 
Good luck to your precious little one!
