Test Results

Our pediatrician just called regarding the AAI x-rays we had taken on Payton the other day. Everything looked normal, so that is great news.

Regarding her upcoming T&A, I'm trying to get it switched to have the surgery done in the hospital. I've learned that kids with DS have a tendency to have bad swelling and perhaps bleeding. The swelling could make her throat swell shut and cause her to be unable to breathe. Yikes. So I'm pushing for an overnight stay for her surgery.

I also forgot to mention the other day that the ENT could not locate the tube in Payton's right ear, so it may have fallen out already, in less than a year. Ugh. So he is going to look when she is knocked out for surgery and if it is missing, then he will replace it.


  1. GREAT news about the AAI! I hope the doctors won't fight you about letting her stay one night. They shouldn't though! Keep us posted!

  2. I am really glad you are staying a night. We're getting ready for our surgery as well, and I am very nervous. I am glad her neck looked good!!! YAY!!
