Aaaaah summertime is officially upon us…and the long 4th of July weekend is upon us…fireworks, hot-dogs, extra time with family and friends. Everyone can look back at our childhood summer day memories. Splashing with our friends in the pool, going camping, travelling to new places, watching movies, barbecues, playing sports outside….we just have to make sure we are keeping our inhalers with us, taking note of our triggers (smoke, heat, grass allergies, pets, dust).
Modern asthma and allergy medicine has made summertime a whole lot easier than it was for our children than it was for us and our parents. June 30th was our last Breathmobile school visit. We spent our day at Place@PrescottSchool. It was a beautiful sunny day and we had a great staff. James, our patient services rep was there to interview parents about their children’s health. Nurse Spencer and Medical Assistant Lisa was there to perform the appropriate medical tests. Dr. Piltch was our doctor on duty, and Respiratory Therapist Priscilla performed and coached our children through their pulmonary function tests. It was a great day and we will miss our Breathmobile kids!
