My DS, age 6 and in K, has allergy induced asthma. On Friday he had the first real flare in over a year. He is on at least 5 days of steriods and I would bet it will be closer to a week in addition to albutrol right now we have worked up to every 4 hours. He is not sick and has not been sick prior to this flare. He has a prn order at school for the albutrol but I'm not sure I can request it be scheduled for a few days while recovering. In addition, he is really really hyper when he is on the steroids. We are using decodron this time instead of prednisone and that is a little better but still not ideal. I am concerned he will not be able to focus well during the school day. Yes is it is K, but his class is pretty structured and academically focused. My question is, do I send him to school and tell the teacher if he is disruptive to call me and send the work home for us to do?? Do I keep him home until we are done with the meds and he are returned to his baseline?? His breathing is still not great but he is not bothered by it. How stable does he need to be before I send him back??
