Oh boy, doesn’t that little man look sweet and innocent? Just add a halo and angel wings and he’d be set. That doesn’t look like the face of a boy who doesn’t sleep at night and keeps his mama up…or does it? Look at the puffy eyes. The sign of a boy who really doesn’t sleep enough. My little guy needs some answers to his problems. And hopefully, we get some today.
Apollo has an appointment at 10:30 to see the ENT he saw exactly seven months ago. At that time the ENT stuck a camera down his nose and into his upper airways. He said his esophagus and voice box were red and inflamed- likely from reflux- but everything looked fine structurally. Now the doctors believe he has some type of obstruction in his trachea. The pulmonologist kept assuring us he doesn’t believe he has a disease but that something is structurally wrong with his trachea.
The scope sent down back in May doesn’t go down far enough to see the trachea, hence the upcoming bronchoscopy. We are hoping and praying for some answers. Apollo has suffered enough.
Finally, a smile!
I had to take these pictures yesterday to show off my latest knitting project. I knit this little gray vest to add an extra layer of warmth on cold winter days. It’s the Toddler T-shirt Vest from Sam Lamb. It was a quick and easy knit and could totally be spruced up with a few different colors or adding a little seed stitch or something along the front. I chose gray for this because I wanted it to match his serious personality. I see more of these in his future…
