information on cough variant asthma. Duckie's chest felt tight yesterday in gym after running three laps. She tried to tell the aide that her chest hurt, but the PE teacher cut her off before she could get across that her asthma might be kicking up. She didn't see the nurse. So I called the school nurse this morning and she said she would make sure Duckie's classroom teacher and all her specials teacher are aware of the diagnosis and the cough variant, rather than wheezing as a primary symptom. So Duckie comes homes and tells me that she thinks her teacher thinks she's faking because she was pulled aside and told that asthma is very serious and she shouldn't fake just to go to the nurse. I'm stopping in the school tomorrow so I'll ask the nurse how often Duckie comes to her office. Duckie told me that she been there once or twice since the school year started; I don't think that's excessive for as sick as she's been. So I'd like to get some information for her teacher, preferably a pamphlet, so that she can understand that this is potentially serious. And I'd like Duckie to see the nurse, even if she suspects Duckie is faking, and I will deal with Duckie if that becomes an issue. She's a teacher, not a nurse or doctor. The problem is that there isn't a lot of information. Sigh. Any help would be appreciated.
