MATTHEW had his CT today....

well, today, matthew had his CT done of his SINUS & LUNGS...it started REALLY early this am...we got out of the house by 645am because he had to be there at the hospital by 730am....well, we made it and got him checked in and then we were escorted back to the prep area...i spoke to the anesthesiologist and we went over some questions (the usual) and just learned that they were going to use "gas" as their general anesthesia...well, this thing went by SOOOO fast, literatly, within 15 mins, he was DONE and waking up ready to walk out of there! it was so funny! he was WIDE AWAKE immediately after being taken off the gas!! silly boy!

well, after a couple of ours in recovery, we walked over to the drs office to find out what she had to say and she said that his lungs are what they are....they are CHRONIC LUNG DISEASE.....they are very SCARRED...she showed me the CT and where they should be BLACK (as normal lungs look like), they are WHITE mainly instead of BLACK...that is not good...but they are what they are and GOD WILLING they will HEAL someday...as for his SINUS, well, the right side looked fine...normal....but the left side, while looked ALMOST normal, there was a small area that was slightly swollen and she said that she will have to keep an eye on it....the test is if he stays HEALTHY with no congestion the next 7-10 days (because he took his last dose of OMNICEPH ANTIBIOTIC monday) then we are ok....BUT if he should start to get congested, then she thinks that it is his SINUS and she will immediatley put him back on an antibiotic and then send us to a ENT that will do a procedure on his sinus to try to open them up!! just amazing.....

well, that is it....THANK GOD nothing to bad....he is what he is....i am so proud of him...he got a shot today of vaccine and it was given to him on his arm and he did not even WHIMPER!! no crying or anything!! so proud of him...

Wow, poor little guy has been thru too much in his little life, but sounds like he is a trooper. The pictures of the kids are soo cute. Hope you e-mail me more if you'd like, we aren't that far apart!! Maybe if we get down tho SA to visit my MIL this summer you and I could actually meet , get pics for our blogs, whatever.
will keep my fingers crossed that Matthew doesn't get any congestion since this Texas weather is getting freaky again and allergy season is a startin....
