pulmonology update

Aidan had an appointment with the pulmonologist this morning. Aside from having to wait over an hour with Evan in tow, it went okay. Basically he wanted us to come back in a month to see how Aidan is doing with the singulair and the vest in addition to his other respiratory treatments.

This doctor is new to CMC-Northeast. Today was actually the 1 year anniversary of his first day there. He's worked with a lot of kids with neurological problems and explained to me why respiratory problems and neurological injuries usually go hand in hand.

He ordered a blood allergy test, as well. I will have to take Aidan back up to the lab another day for them to do that.

I got a call from the hematologists office because the doctor had ordered a full body x-ray. I will have to take Aidan there next Wednesday after his appointment with the hematologist.

Right now, I just want to collapse. I'm exhausted. I'm working on a cake for a 3 year old little girl for tomorrow, and a couple of baby afghans, but all I really want to do is sleep. I'd give anything for a quiet vacation at the beach. One can dream, can't they?

Thank you all for your prayers and to those of you who have purchased raffle entries. I hope that you will enter May's 50/50 raffle. Thanks again!
