We got discharged from LeBonheur late Sunday afternoon. Carson sounded so much better after they sucked all that junk out of his nose and throat! He does however still have a wheezing sound coming more from his upper airway, which is of concern. I kept him home from daycare and took him to his dr's office yesterday for a follow-up. The two dr's that saw him said his lungs sounded good but they could still hear the wheezing in his throat. We are scheduled for an upper GI test at LeBonheur on Thursday to find out if there's anything pressing/squeezing his trachea causing the wheeze. It could be that he has a normal trachea and the bronchiolitis caused inflammation in it but at the other extreme, it could be a rare congenital heart defect called a vascular ring. This is where a vessel from the heart has wrapped itself around his trachea and is squeezing it. Some children who have this do fine with no intervention but in some cases, surgery is warranted. But we'll cross that bridge when we get to it. For now, we would appreciate your prayers that we have a healthy baby boy with just some tracheal irritation.

Here he is last night with his buddy, Alex. He looks HUGE in this picture. I mean, I'm not in denial that he's a big baby but he looks exceptionally big in this picture. :)

I know God is going to take of my sweet boy but of course, as any mother would be, I am nervous/anxious about the test. Please pray for me that I would be able to rest in God's plan for Carson, cast my cares on the Lord and not worry (Phil. 4:6-7).


  1. Bless his heart! I hope they figure out whats going on asap and that he's 100% in no time.

  2. Praying for y'all! So sorry sweet Carson is going through this. Love y'all!!!
