Addisyn had a chest x-ray. She has a little pneumonia, but is doing OK. Her pulmonologist also looked at her airway on the x-ray and it was pretty open. He said its really not that bad at all- even the left broncus. He told me that sometimes a bronch isn't an accurate depiction of the airway because they have a tube inserted and they are so sedated that everything is relaxed. it is nice to see a nice open airway on the x-ray film. In the past, he always pointed out her collapsed airway. Maybe we ARE getting somewhere with this.
