Well the doctor came in yesterday afternoon and told us that they were concerned about Nicholas’ lung function. Unfortunately, it was most likely a false reading.
The machine they use for lung function testing has to be calibrated every day. If there is a change in barometric pressure, it must be recalibrated. Thursday everyone’s lung function results were WAY up. There was a huge drop in barometric pressure and the machine was not recalibrated.
So… on Monday, everyone who was tested on Thursday will be retested and retested by a different person. Most likely, there will be a drop in his lung function. The doctor says that it will probably be halfway between the low 44% and the high 57%. She also said that if it remained at the 57%, that she would most definitely take it. She just wants to make sure that we are getting a true look at his progress so they will not cut his treatments too short. She would rather be safe than sorry. I agreed.
So Monday at 12:30 he will be going down for a repeat test. We are praying that God worked a miracle on all these kids and that the results will remain the same. Wouldn’t that just be wonderful? I know it can happen. I’m gong to pray for that. Want to join in? 🙂
