Medical Good News Finally!
Thanks to our wonderful pediatrician, Getty now has two new medical machines:
- Cough Assist Machine: This has a face-mask with a tube. The machine blows air quickly into her lungs and quickly sucks the air back out again, simulating a cough. Since her natural cough is weak, the machine helps get any gunk out of her lungs just like a normal cough would do. It also helps strengthen her lungs. We’ll use it a couple of times a day.
- Suction Machine: This is used to suction spit or other gunk (“secretions”) out of Getty’s mouth so she doesn’t accidentally swallow it into her lungs.
Here’s to healthy lungs!
Any step forward is good.
Isn’t it funny how we get so excited about medical equipment because it will help our kiddos? Hugs!
Awesome, you guys are doing such a great job with little Getty owl!!!!!!
