Katie's visit to ENT doctor.....











So, we had Katie's checkup with Dr Jacobs at CHOP the other day. The nurses and doctors were all so impressed with how healthy and happy looking the babies are............it made me feel good! :) Doctor Jacobs holds a special place in my heart, b/c he is the Doctor that figured out what was wrong with Katie back in Nov 2006 when she was airlifted to CHOP. It was an amazing and scary sight to see a number of doctors and nurses surrounding your 2 week old baby, and nobody knowing why she was having so many "blue spells". Dr Jacobs came in and instantly knew it was a heart issue...........Anyway, since Katie has been sounding like she has "congestion" after she eats/drinks, she is scheduled for a swallow study this coming Monday. This will determine if there is any aspiration going on when she eats/drinks. Dr. also scheduled another bronchoscopy for the end of March. She had one a year ago, so they like to do a comparison to keep an eye on her tracheamalacia......I'll keep you all posted. :)
