One afternoon last week, I got a call from Drew's CF doctor, Lisa Burns. She was our fellow from day 1 and recently accepted a full time position at Childrens, and we decided to stick with her. I have no problem with our other doctor, but I felt really connected to Dr. Burns and I'm happy that she's hanging around. Anyway, she called because she was going through some of our paperwork and remembered that we had discussed having another bronchoscopy done this summer when Drew was healthy. At the suggestion of setting up an appointment, I pushed back pretty hard.
Hello Erin,I spoke with Dr. Wood further about looking at Drew's airway. He agreed that if we did not need a culture for any reason then we could postpone looking at his airway. We should be able to assess how well he is doing based on the frequency of antibiotics, admissions, etc. Hopefully he will have less infections during his second year of life since he has already seen some of the viruses this past year. Let me know if you have any questions.Lisa
