Yesterday, the ENT doctor came in and to our surprise, did a procedure on Nick right here in the room. They made him snort some numbing liquid, then they put gauze soaked in more to numb is nose and his throat. Then they took a lighted scope and went up into his sinus cavity. Let me tell you – I saw a red light in his head up above the bridge of his nose. It was crazy.
The CT Scan showed lots of disease, but he said that on first glance, it didn’t look as bad as he thought it would – although, he was only able to see into the very closest cavities. They took a culture to see if he was growing any bacteria up there that they may be missing and they have started him on Prednisone (30mg) once a day. They want to begin him on an antibiotic for the sinuses but they are in disagreement as to how that should be given. They are trying to work out the details now. So we have to wait and see about that one.
Nicholas is also supposed to go down at any minute for a lung function test. We are praying for better numbers. His cough is still very wet. Knowing that and now the issue with the headaches and the sinuses, we will more likely be here for another week.
As soon as I know more I will let you guys know. Thanks for checking in.
P.S. Thank you to Brooks, Jordan, and Jameson for the visit yesterday. it was wonderful having friends from home.
