Ashton’s Scope Is Over!

Well I am happy to report that all is well! A went into the OR at 1:15pm and we were taken into recovery at about 3pm to see him. He wasn’t do so well then but at 5pm he came back up to his floor and is doing VERY well. I am soooo proud of him! He is on .5 of oxygen satting 95+.

So the news from the bronch. No abnormalities of the airway. No floppiness. So no real answers. There was some redness/irritation in his airway which they believe would be from reflux. The sample from the wash of his lungs is being sent out and we will have results from that in a few days.

Adenoids are still in. He didn’t think that it was necessary to remove them.

All in all I don’t know how I feel. I guess it is just hard like this because we still have no real idea of what is going on. But it is wonderful that there is nothing going on with his airway.

Thanks for all the thoughts and prayers. Now we need more as we embark on the next part of our journey…

    Glad to hear Ashton is doing so well. I am ready to see what happens on the next part of your journey to find out what is going on. It is hard to get no news even though it is good news because it means you are still needing an answer.

    I am glad he did well today. I am sure you are relieved that it was not his airway but you still do not have any answers. We will keep checking on his progress. I am sure he is charming all the nurses with his smiles.

    I know the answers will come, it’s just going to take some more time. This is good that they are starting to eliminate a few things. Hopefully soon they will get to the bottom of this.Hang in there:)Shannon

    I just knew that he’d do well. Good boy Ashton!And although you don’t have a new answer, you’ve at least crossed something very major off of the list of possibilities. I hope there will be answers coming soon.
