Miguel to have a laryngoscopy
Hey guys. I need everyone to please pray for Miguel (and us too) because he is scheduled for a Laryngoscopy this Thursday at 8:45 am. He keeps getting Croup: "(sometimes referred to as croup syndrome or laryngotracheobronchitis) is a respiratory disease which afflicts infants and young children, typically aged between 3 months and 3 years. The respiratory symptoms are caused by inflammation of the larynx and upper airway, with resultant narrowing of the airway." he is 7 months old and has gotten it four times in five months, which is not typical. The croup is not an abnormal thing, but getting it that many times in an infant is. Therefore our pediatrician scheduled an appointment with a specialist (ENT Doc) at Childrens South. The procedure consists of them numbing Miguel and then sticking a tube down his nose to his thoat, which has a camera on the end so that they can look at his vocal cords and see if they see anything that could be abnormal. We are praying that it all comes back with something that is normal or easily fixed. But we ultimately want the Lords will. Thank you for praying for us.
