The girls went yesterday for their Pulmo check-up, and the best news is that we didn't have to wait because no one else was showing up for their appointments! lol Seriously, sometimes that place is packed and we wait forever! Okay, actually the REALLY good news is that Alana's PFTs were great (without any medication) and she doesn't have to go back unless she starts experiencing problems again. She's been off her meds for several months now so we're hopeful that she will continue to do well.
Madi's PFTs were also good, but due to my concerns he ordered a sinus xray. When she sneezes it is EVERYWHERE (truly, I've never seen anything like it) and many mornings she vomits because of all the mucus she swallowed throughout the night. I've been concerned that she will be sent home from school several days a week because of this, and school starts a week from today. So we had the xray and it showed that she had a severe sinus infection on the right side. Makes sense. So she'll start on a 14 day antibiotic and hopefully she'll be less snotty when it is over, lol. The doctor also ordered a sleep study because he is concerned she isn't getting good sleep at night. She fell asleep, sitting up on the table in the middle of the exam and I explained that she does this any time she sits still for more than a few minutes. She's back to being a restless sleeper, falls out of her bed all the time, and is cranky more days than not. The clinic where we had it done last time is closed, so now our only option is to have it done at the hospital. I can imagine that'll cost a pretty penny, so we'll see when they call me to schedule it. Too bad this couldn't have been done over the summer while I'm off work.
I was a little nervous about this appointment, like I am with all of their appointments I suppose. But we got some really awesome news about Alana and hopefully Madi will get to feeling better soon.
