Cedie Lynn Mock's Blog

Cedie Lynn was born on 6/16/05 in Memphis, TN. She arrived 6 wks early. Cedie spent the first 11 & 1/2 months in the hospital. Although she endured many surgeries and spent 2/3 of her life in hospitals, she was a very happy, beautiful little girl who was full of love and who was loved by everyone who met her in person and online. She now watches over all of us as our own little angel.

5/3/06- Talk w/ Pulmonologist

Cedie had a good night last night and a good day today. She was happy and playful. She got some new toys from Child Life Services.

Her pulmonologist called me this afternoon. He had a long discussion with her cardiologist regarding her cath results. They were able to rule out the heart as the reason for her vent dependence and the excess fluids on her lungs. Therefore, we have to look at the lungs more closely. She is going to have a CT scan done tomorrow (Thursday). Her heart biopsy results will be back on Friday. If they do not find anything with those results then it is likely that she will need the open lung biopsy and muscle biopsy performed. We have been discussing/debating these two procedures for months. However, the doctors feel that we are at the "end of the diagnostic rope". They have tried every other test they could come up with, short of these two more drastic procedures. We will meet with him on Sunday. The surgeries could be done as early as the beginning of next week.

    Jennifer- I just noticed this at the pre-school and wanted you to know that you and your family are always in our thoughts and prayers. Now that I know about your web-site I can check on her daily.

    Tell Dylan hello for us, we'll have to get them together this summer. Ryan has his 5 year old check up today! He knows he is getting shots, so I am hoping all goes well!

    God bless you and your family.
