Missy has this horrible asthmatic cough. It takes forever to get rid of once she gets it. We use the inhaler and nasal spray. She will likely have this for another couple of weeks. It's like bronchitis, but doctor says it's asthma. My question is, should I let her go in the pool? My instinct is to keep her quiet, but what the heck am I going to do with this kid until school starts. She's bored and starts running through the house and irritating her brother (he irritates her too). The running through the house makes things worse, so which is the lesser evil....letting her get some energy out in a pool or keeping her in the house, when she's bored out of her mind? It's really hot this week, so she can't even play outside, because the quality of the air is horrendous. I usually don't go out to the pool until later in the day (after 3) when the sun isn't so hot. I'm not all that well versed on the dos and don'Tourette's Syndrome of asthma. We don't deal with it all the time, mostly seasonally. I've only had to use the inhaler for emergency purposes on her about three times.
