By luck (or misfortune? or happy accident?) they decided only to perform the bronchoscopy. Of course, that meant she still had to undergo anesthesia and have a tube stuck down her nose – but it was one test, not two.
Overall the test went well. They were able to get a good sample to test.
For the bronchoscopy purposes and getting the sample, it was required that they inject fluid into the lungs…of a CF patient. This, of course, “could cause a low-grade fever.”
Low-grade my ass. She spiked up to 103.6*.
Now she’s back to normal, at school, playing/fighting with her sister…and none the wiser.
Meanwhile Erik & I wait.
And wait some more.
The test results could mean a hospital stay, a PICC line, a g-tube – any or all of the above.
Kennedy is blissfully unaware of the repercussions.
But Erik & I wait.
