8 Year Old with Asthma, another update...

Submitted by Elise on Tue, 2011-04-19 13:56

Nathaniel's new CPn titre came in today.  In December 2010, when he commenced zithromycin, his titre was 1:256.  Today (April 2011) it was 1:128.


He is doing very well.  He sleeps well now - since the end of January, for the first time in years, he has not needed his ventolin inhaler during the night.  In the last month he has commenced allergy desensitizing and I've noticed that in the past 2 weeks he has been needing his ventolin a bit more.  I'm not concerned, I think this is an immunological reaction to the desensitizing.

 He is tolerating the full CAP extremely well and aside from the intial, awful reaction he had in January, has really not been bothered by anything.


We are all very, very happy with the way things are progessing.

You just brought a smile to an otherwise grey and gloomy Chicago day. It's great to know he's now going to have a normal life.

The difference between what we do and what we are capable of doing would suffice to solve most of the world’s problems. Mohandas Gandhi

Magical but definitely not magic.  I am so happy for you, Nathaniel, and your family.  Again I can't help but think that in fifty years he would have had a harder time.  It appears that he has moved forward as much in a few months as I did in five years.
