@nicole: The blue one is 3times a day and the rest once a day. I am also on magnesiunhydroxide teva 745g 3times a day for poep. I’ve got no choice than to eat o else hunger go finish me, I also make friends with the nurses sharing food to get extra sometimes. 😉
@oluwakemine: When Oga saw the food he questioned them ooo saying ”is this for the baby alone or mother and baby.” The doctors laughed saying its well fortified and graded to met the daily recommended needs of both mother and baby.I was like This is why people lost weight when admitted in hospitals.
The ”flat thing” is **Kipfilet = Chicken filet.**October 9, 2017 at 12:11 pm #40092

@pearl it’s so good to hear from you……
Days are running so fast, hang in there and keep updating us please…..The brown inhaler looks familiar like the type my boy uses, is the blue one salbutamol? What are they called? Nice you are off 02. We thank God for hubby and his lunch dates…..In fact Huge GBOSA for Mr. Pearl..
It truly can’t be easy, May God continue to strengthen you, we shall rejoice and dance soonest…..October 9, 2017 at 12:26 pm #40095
@bosa: Yes, you are right. The blue one is Salbutamol. Red is Qvar. Brown is Beclometason. I use all with aero chamber aka spacer but who has time for aero chamber…
Thanks for the wishes.October 9, 2017 at 12:30 pm #40097
hahaha even I was wondering where is the rest of the food…oyinbo sha! Thank God for your hubby and his cooking skills…I was just using app to order so so Indian, Chinese and Jamaican takeaway when we were in hospital! Glad you are back in top spirits girl! @pearlOctober 9, 2017 at 12:36 pm #40098
@pearl the Beclometason is what my boy uses with a spacer once a day….I use the seretide preventive when i remember but we both use salbutamol during an episode. Never heard of Qvar, the Salbutamol looks quite different, the Beclo looks the same though.
See me oh, the respiratory doc., gave me the impression that spacers were for children. I had mentioned to her before that i feel like i get maximum benefit when i use his travel spacer with my salbutamol…. Thanks to your info, i am allowed to use it and not feel like an agbaya.October 9, 2017 at 12:38 pm #40099October 9, 2017 at 1:06 pm #40102
@ddo: ”…where is the rest of the food…”
Thanks for your support dear.
@bosa: ”Spacers for children ke…”
They are for children and adults and you are right you get max benefit using it but carrying them around can be challenging. My lung doctor hammers it to my ears at appointments and oga tot of tying a rope around it and the spacer as pendant because I don’t use it.
Personally, I don’t use them at all when outdoors but sometimes use them when indoors…**well, when I remember. 🙁 ** but doing good girl in the hospital.
I think the Qvar and Beclo contains same thing with just few different ingredients…not so sure but wondering why I am on the 3 inhalers. The doc. said the blue is preventive and the rest is for preventing episodes of asthma/copd.**dont even know for them again **October 9, 2017 at 3:26 pm #40129
@pearl lol at spacer as pendant…..Pls be a very very good girl in the hospital oh……
Good to know oh, i have learnt today….See this country?? My boy was given the smaller one for travelling and the huge one for indoor use so i have the smaller one in my drawer. Irony is my asthma at his age was worse, still more severe than his’. He rarely has episodes besides coughing so to think it is him they gave the spacer to, Over the weekend i was wheezing and had to use both tabs and inhaler, I am so using the spacers henceforth.
