Update - Bennett's First Cold, Part 6

Wednesday, February 24, 2010

Bennett is doing much better today.  Bennett is completely back to normal except for a very small wheezing sound that can be heard only at certain times.  It's hard to know if it's wheezing or if it's just his normal noisy breathing due to his tracheomalacia.  We suppose the doctor will tell us that at whatever point she directs us to come for an appointment.

In the meantime, Breck's father has given us a stethoscope to use so that we can begin learning what breathing sounds are normal and which ones are not.  While this will certainly not take the place of a doctor who has been trained to do this, it will help us to notice breathing sounds that could be an indication that something is going on in Bennett's lungs.
