Katie's bronchoscopy

Katie had her bronchoscopy done in the CHOP operating room today. We arrived by 730 this morning, however, the procedure wasn't done until close to 1030! Katie found a lawnmower to keep her very busy-and made sure that CHOP's floors were well cut! :) :) Of course, this pretty little girl was the talk of the floor! :) The Child Life girl was nice enough to bring an Elmo VHS tape in (OMG-I have not hit rewind on a VCR in SOOO long!) and Katie was super happy. Once they gave Katie her "giggle juice" as they call it, she was feeling GREAT. :) Doc said the procedure went very smooth, and it appears that her tracheamalacia is improving and he is certain that she will outgrow it. :) Yay for Katie girl. We have to follow up with the Airway Clinic in six months, and we can expect another bronchoscopy in a year or so from now. :)
