A Small Camera

On Monday we found out that you were going to have a Laryngoscopy and a Bronchoscopy. basically they put a camera down your air way to your the edge of your lungs. We were trying to find out why you can not get off the ventilator.

For the first time in a while we had some results. I am sure your Mom will have all the clinical verbiage but basically you have to much flesh around your vocal cords. that is causing a partial blockage of your air way.

Just past the vocal cords your wind pipe is a little narrow which adds to your respiratory distress. Just to add too everything else you have a third bronchial tube. Tomorrow you will have an MRI to look at your head and body to get a better picture of what is going on.

The best answerer we received on Monday, the Doctor thinks that both your vocal cords are moving, your cry is so soft because you are not moving enough air to make noise, not because your cords are paralysed. That is great news.

Your pacer wires and the rest of your stitches were removed today. Another step to getting you home!

Its is great to have answers to help get him home. Hopefully the doctors solution is not tooo complicated. AND once fixed this would probably help reach the next goal.
