Today was really tough for Sage. In order to go to the OR to place his picc and get a bronchoscopy, he had to be npo (no food or water) after midnight. Those horrible dufases didn't come to get him for his procedure until 4pm!! The good mommy I am, I have to file a complaint with the procedural supervisor. He is 6, and that was torture. Yet, he still all smiles :-) Super Sage! All the nurses adore him because of his go with the flow attitude and always goofin off personality, regardless of his situation. Count on Sage for Smiles. Always.
Finally in the Or procedure room, a familiar face and one of the beloved residents did his bronchoscopy. He did find mucus strands in the lower right and upper left lung lobes, which is a beginning sign of infection. He got a great culture from an extensive lavage (saline wash out of the lungs) and Sage is now a part of another study about anaerobic bacteria in pediatric CF cases.
|waiting is the worst.|
|ComeOn!! wakin up mad that his food wasn't here yet!! Mom got him fries :-)|
Plan for tomorrow: less blood,
more food and fun.
Simple enough :-)
