Just as we thought K is getting well after this episode, we probably lost K for a while yesterday.
She was taking a bath when she couldn’t manage her secretion. Sensing problem, my helper accounted that she brought K to her bed to clear her secretions.
Suction was done but very promptly, she became unresponsive, eyes closed.
She had to be resuscitated. We are very thankful for my helper’s response. K came around.
When I reached home, I was anxious but glad to hear her cries.
We got Starpals to come have a look to make sure that the lungs are not compromised.
Hours after that episode, she can play with the nurse and doctor who came.
Although well now, she still has got thicker than usual mucus and secretion We think K got choked by a mucus plug that led to this episode.
Mucus plug is the bane of these kids with low lung function as they do not have the strength to swallow or blow out strong enough to expel the secretions.
Thank God Kaelyn is well and good as of now
