    she seem to be breathing fine, no retracting, but she is weezing alittle, but not something i would worry about, it just that it seem her asthma just goes from not so good to i mean very hard breathing and it mostly at night. I think it the fever that bothering me more, becasue every little infection or cold she get trigger off the asthma

    As a mom....I would settle in for the night and see how she does...You can always do another neb tx tonight to ease your concerns re: her breathing. My kids temps always spiked at night, always more scary. Yet the ER in the middle of the night can be a scary and exausting experience as well. (no offense ER nurses.) I hope this helps. Little sick ones are a sad and scary thing, I know. Your a good Mama.
