Appt with lung transplant @ChildrensPhila .. 💚
Riley had his appt Monday with lung transplant.
PFT’s (pulmonary function test) and labs were all within ‘Riley range’.
He seems to have recovered nicely from the astrovirus and CDiff. Just has a few more days of Vancomycin to finish.
He lost a few pounds from being inpatient last week but nothing concerning. We actually made some adjustments to his gtube feeds/hydration. Hopefully these changes will get Riley back to eating orally more. With all the gtube nutrition he just isn’t hungry.
Riley did start taking Tamiflu prophylactically last night because unfortunately his big brother Christian was diagnosed with the flu yesterday. Fingers crossed that Riley does not get the flu or back to CHOP he’d go.
Lastly Riley had a dexa scan. Those results will be sent to his bone health doctor in Endocrine who we’ll see before his next bone infusion therapy in the spring.
Thank you All for continuing to be on this Journey with Riley.
