Todd the Dedicated Father

Todd Woods didn’t know his son Jonathon had asthma until he awoke one night to find his son hardly breathing. The sound of his wheezing woke him and his wife up at 4am, prompting Todd to call 911. Todd’s advice to other parents is to “Try not to panic the first time. I panicked the first time. Try to understand [what is happening] and take it slow.” Todd has since learned that Jonathon can develop symptoms of asthma in the wintertime or when he gets sick. Thanks to the SETA Head Start class he took in November 2014, Todd now knows that he can start his son on albuterol as soon as Jonathon gets a runny nose. By working harder to prevent his son’s symptoms, Todd hopes to avoid another call to 911.
