Update on Amanda

We went to Amanda’s pulmonologist yesterday and she told us Amanda’s cold is probably viral, but that she looks pretty good given that she has SMA and a cold…Imagine not being able to breathe properly, not being able to move mucus from your nose, not being able to cough phlegm building up on your throat,  and on top of that having more that normal secretions?  It is pretty tough!  Thankfully, this cold is really really mild and she only has a congested nose and she can still breathe.

Amanda’s Dr. prescribed some meds to help her with the congestion, increased her BiPAP settings, told us to use BiPAP 24/7 and increase respiratory treatments  (we were already doing that; we know what we are supposed to do when they get sick).

Her Physical Therapy, Stimulation Therapy, Oral Therapy and rides to the park have been cancelled this week.  Hopefully during the weekend we can resume the outings.  Here’s a couple of pictures of her today while off BiPAP.  BTW, I just took a photography class, hope the pictures are more pro looking!
