Admission Follow Up

Azer blew a few points higher on his PFT than he did the day he got discharged. He still felt like it was harder that it should have been to get there. The doctor felt like he could still get back to his base line if the weather and his allergies were optimal. The great news is that he feels like his lungs are very clear, and he has been running in the mornings and has not been out of breath. So we will try to make the most of the rest of summer before high school starts!!

Azer also felt that dermatology was wrong about his skin peeling. He said that as soon as they had switching him from Gentamicin to Tobramycin, the peeling stopped progressing. The doctor said that it was a possibility it was from the antibiotic, but that the reaction he had was just undocumented.

He ate very well while in the hospital. His appetite hasn't been great since getting home. He has had an upset stomach and diarrhea for the past week. The good news (sort of) is that I also ended up with these symptoms, so it may be a virus.

While the IPV did great for him in the hospital, and we are persuing getting one for home use, he felt like getting back home and using his vest helping clear out some mucus that wasn't moving otherwise. Of course, him getting back to running has helped him feel 100% back to normal!
