This whole time, Lava’s mother has been absolutely incredible, even when today was extremely difficult. Actually, this whole week has not been a good one for them. Lava had one positive corona test that led to her being isolated and then a subsequent negative test. That, needless to say, was horrible for her mother to experience because it introduced a whole new fear for Lava’s life if she had had the virus. Then seeing her daughter’s deterioration today was again very painful for her.
Georgia and I sat with Lava’s mum through the procedure. Georgia pointed out that this week has come to an end. God willing, there are better things in store next week.
Lava’s breathing is much better after the balloon dilation. Please pray that her trachea, which will inevitably narrow again over time, will still remain wide enough that she won’t have this problem again.
