Okay, sorry for waiting until late to post an update on the bronchoscopy. Aidan did well going to sleep and they only had to stick him twice to get an IV started. The doctor let our nurse stay and observe the procedure, so she got to stay with Aidan the whole time, which made me feel better.
The doctor said that everything looks great. Aidan's adenoids are a little swollen but he said it wasn't anything to worry about right now. His vocal cords look great. His upper airway is clear as is the rest of his trachea. They were able to take the trach tube out to see if there was any collapse and there wasn't. So, everything looks really good and we'll have an appointment set up with an ENT to get Aidan the PMV.
They haven't called to set that appointment up yet, but we should hear something tomorrow. While we were at Levine we went down to the rehab floor to say hi to the therapists and nurses that took care of Aidan while we were there. They were all happy to see him and kept going on about how big he's gotten.
So, there... I hope everyone is pleased with the update. :P
We've got the golf tournament rescheduled for August 9th. Please pray that we get more players to register. We're lowering the entry fee to hopefully draw in more people. I don't know... I'm looking at what our costs are and, boy, I wish we were getting the course's cut of the deal. We've made the registration form so that it can be filled out and emailed to us or faxed instead of waiting on snail-mail. I'm thinking of other things to do to raise funds as well. We're considering auctions or raffles. I think all of which can be accomplished online.
Well, The rest of the week is pretty quiet. We just have some hyperbaric treatments and then I'm going to try to spend the weekend gathering and pricing items for a yard sale.
Thank you all for your prayers for Aidan. We greatly appreciate all of your love and support.
p.s. I was trying to be funny with my sarcasm. I'm so grateful to those of you read this blog or check it every day to see if there is news about Aidan. He's a little heartbreaker, I'll tell you. Even in cyberspace he's got the ladies wrapped around his little finger.
