The Technical Stuff.

OK so I just reread the last few posts and realized some of you may be looking for an actual update on Colin's medical status, and not just another reminder that he is adorable.

On Wednesday morning we had another chest x-ray. The doctor said he looks much more clear. There are still a couple patches of mucus in his lungs, but if we focus the chest PT in those areas and continue with these meds, we should be able to knock it out. He seems to be responding to the meds perfectly. 

His breathing has drastically improved. Except for a couple nights when the respiratory therapists were running late, I have not heard a wheeze or rattle in his chest at all.... the silence is incredibly strange. Colin has been a hard breather since birth... so it's awesome to hear such an immediate difference.
