We all went to see Dr. Tunkel yesterday (Q's Otolaryngologist). He had great news! Quinn has mostly outgrown her laryngomalacia!! Awesome. He also said that we can get the DMSA done... with Quinn sedated. Great! We will just need to have a pediatric anesthesiologist there the whole time. No big deal. He did mention that Quinn's adenoids and tonsils looked enlarged. He wants us to get a sleep study done. yes, that test that I have been dreading and trying to put off. If she has sleep apnea, then she needs to get her adnoids and tonsils out. If not, then he said we could put off the surgery! I am thrilled that we now have another thing crossed off Quinn's checklist. Her Urologist is now setting up the DMSA with the pediatric anesthesiologist and radiologist. I am now trying to set up her sleep study. Dr Tunkel mentioned that if she does end up needing surgery on her kidneys and tonsils/adenoids, that we should do it all at once. No need to make her suffer twice. So now I am feeling great. Things are getting done. We are moving towards being normal again.
Tomorrow Q's Urologist is coming out to the house again and collecting urine and bringing us our first dose of the study medicine. While I am still nervous if we are doing the right thing for Quinn by having her in the study... I can't think about that right now. We have been praying. We will continue to be.

I don't envy all of these TOUGH decisions that you guys have made...and continue to make for Quinn's health! You are great parents and it sounds like you seriously have the VERY best care. It is a BLESSING that you live so close to the awesome docs at Hopkins.
We'll continue to pray that each of these steps brings further resolution to all of Quinn's issues!!

What wonderful news !!Quin is improving so rapidly.I know you have to be a little concerned about the testing, but I really have confidence that you are doing the right thing. Don't forget...if she has any problems the doctors will always be available to change things if they need to.It is especially great about her larnyx thingy being better. So,so thankful !
