Emma has been having lung pain occasionally. The clinic told that if she is able to point out the exact spot of the pain, it is most likely a mucus plug. When this happens, we give her a Vest/Neb treatment and she does a lot of coughing and the pain goes away.
Today, she woke up at 3:30am with lung pain. She did a vest and neb. Afterwards, she fell asleep in the couch. We decided to have her sleep as long as she needed and let her be late to school today. I emailed her teacher to let her know and we all went back to sleep.
Around 7:20, I hear Emma calling me. She says “It’s wake up time for me. It is light out.” She got ready for school and make it in plenty of time for the school bell!
She is a strong little girl and she isn’t going to let CF stand in the way of what she wants!
