Results are Normal

Last week we were finally able to get Marshall in for his sweat test. Since he had respiratory issues last Spring at such a young age, the Pulmonologist always sends babies in for a sweat test as a routine test to rule out cystic fibrosis as the cause.

The Marsh did pretty good sitting there getting the monitors and collection discs taped onto his arms. Once they were on, we had to wait around for 30 minutes to make sure enough sweat was collected.


Even though my mom said that he really didn't fit the profile for a positive result, it is still a little nerve-racking waiting for those results. The nurse finally called today and his results came back normal.

What that means is that poor baby probably has seasonal allergies thanks to his mommy :( He had started wheezing the weekend of Hurricane Irene when the weather was damp and stopped when everything dried out so that pretty much confirmed my suspicions.

Looks like a lifetime of Benedryl for the Marsh...
