As you may remember from our hospital stay and the update, one of “my little-darlin’s” had an airway event week before last that threatened her life. This morning we went in for the procedure to scope her airway with the anticipation of finding something structurally wrong or possibly some other kind of odd obstruction. After a 10 minute procedure and a short 1 hour recovery, praise God my daughter is fine.

First of all, thank you for your support and interest in how our 15 month old has been doing since her time in the hospital.
We have had 3 doctor visits since we were released, and Sydney is doing well on a day to day basis. Her upper airway has been inspected three times, and all is well there. The inflammation seen below the trachea seems to have lessened to some degree. The ear nose and throat doctor charged us a week and a half ago to “keep her in a bubble” until we could figure out what is going on.
My 14 month old daughter went into the ER this morning when her doctor recommended she be checked out more fully. After a heap of tests, including blood work and chest Xrays, we still do not know what is causing the issues. She is having a really serious problem breathing and her oxygen levels are only in the upper 80′s to lower 90′s.
They are admitting her to begin steroid treatments and more tests. Supposedly this is “precautionary”, but our daughter is not able to be consoled and we are unsure of what is going on.
