CHOP follow up

It has been since September since I have blogged last. I have had a lot of emotions that I have been dealing with. CHOP asked us to come up and do some exploratory procedures. Jeff and I decided that because of financial reasons only one of us would go. Daddy went to CHOP with Aiden. Boy that was a lot harder than I thought it was going to be. I was a nervous wreck. I cried days before and I cried the day they left and while they were gone..might as well change my name to Mississippi..cause the tears were flowing!
Daddy and Aiden were troopers! They muddled through without Mommy :) They arrived on Thursday and met with the airway clinic specialists and the ENT. He had a chest xray and an anestheisa consult. They manuvered the streets of Philly in a taxi cab and did quite well.
Friday was procedure day. Aiden was sedated and had 4 procedures done. Three teams of doctors worked together and an endoscopy, bronchiectomy,they also injected some saline into his lungs and suctioned it back out to collect samples and well as the ever so fun endoscopy.
