At least on the Big Kid front. :-) Will update you on the other two doods soon.
Saw his pulmonologist yesterday. The news is fantastic.
There is no extensive scarring on Big Kid's lungs. Or blood clots.
He does have a touch of pulmonary hypertention, but it is not the primary kind, so it is treatable. We're going to have to work with the physical therapist on strengthening his chest walls.
He will probably have to sleep with oxygen for an extended period (or unless he moves to sea level), but we have every reason to hope that with time and treatment, he'll be able to ditch the oxygen tanks during the day.
Big Kid won't be able take stimulant medication for his ADHD, because it exacerbates the condition, but if comes between breathing and attention, he'll take the breathing. LOL
The doc was impressed with the kid's new attitude and committment to getting better. Thought he looked really good. Wants him to step up with the walking and weight loss, because that will only improve his condition.
So AGAIN, I spent the drive back up the mountain in tears. But this time they were good ones. :-)
