Sarah was born August 9th. Everything looked great. We took home a perfectly healthy baby girl. Around 5 weeks old I though she was getting a bad cold. Her breathing didn't sound quite right so I took her in. As soon as I got there her breathing cleared up & she sounded just fine. So the doctor obviously said, your doing a good job there is nothing wrong. The next week we brought her in again & she was hospitalized. Over the course of 2 weeks we spent lots of time in hospital trying to figure out what was going on. Saskatoon finally said she had Larmalasia a skin flap in the throat. Acid reflux & the rhyno virus. They told us it would get worse till 4 mo of age but that she would eventually out grow these things.
Well here we are. Around 3 & 1/2 mo old she had a bronculoscobe & they found she did not have the skin flap problem. She has something pressing against her trachia. We did a CT & found a massive growth in the right side of her chest cavity. See gallery for that pic.
