A Lil' Boy's Journey to Live….

Riley’s CT and CTA results are in.
The CT for his lungs did show some increase to the air trapping or mosaic air patterns. What that means is there appears to be more bronchiolitis obliterans or chronic rejection then at the last CT in October. Thankfully Riley is not symptomatic so for now we’ll continue to monitor. If symptoms started to appear that is when an open lung biopsy will be discussed but thankfully we are not there at this time.
The CTA showed arterial tortuosity or curvy vessels towards the back of Riley’s neck. Though it’s rare this is a typical finding with Loeys-Dietz. There was no aneurysms present. We did inquire if this could be the cause of Riley’s frequent headaches but have been deferred to Dr Licht (neurology) for those answers.
So for now like pretty much everything else in Riley’s life we monitor. Riley will continue to Live the Life he so Loves to Live and we’ll cross each bridge when we get to it.
