Hi and Welcome tiadesai and Hello again Lyn!!
tiadesai, asthma can be terrible to experience, especially when you are not able to breathe properly and get enough air in. But now a days if it's treated right away with inhalors, nebulizers and other medications prescribed by your Dr., it can be controlled! I've included a link for you to read about this and I hope this makes you feel a little better about your Mom.
Lyn, it's always wonderful to hear from you! - I've been through that inhalor thing with Britt as well! :)
