Trial and Error

Scopes are done and it’s about what we expected. Her entire airway (nasal passages, throat, trachea) and lungs are very inflamed. In fact, they are MORE inflamed than they were in May. The big question is where is the drainage that’s causing the inflammation. coming from.  We’re going to treat her like she has a sinus infection with antibiotics and steroids to see if that helps, but to prevent further damage, we’ll be putting her on CPAP at night to keep junk from settling in the lungs. Plan is to get that all going on and come back in 3 months to see if there is any improvement. We’re just in trial and error mode, trying to figure out how to take care of Evie’s airway and lungs.
