THE TORTURE DEVICE

Every time Max's lungs worry our doctors, we must get a xray of his poor lil' lungs. It is never, ever easy. They put him in a torture device which holds him still for a good "capture" of the lungs. I always forget to bring my camera, but Cedie's mom did not. Check this out (link below). Understand why I always dread the much too often lung xray?

Poor wonderful little Max! I wish we could all take turns having the testing done for you little Max! You go through so much with that little body of yours! No wonder you are called Mighty Max!!!
Hang in there little buddy!

Oh Max! This breaks my heart to see this horrible thing. Surely someone could invent something that isn't so done right awful.

I haven't been able to read the blog in a while due to some health problems here in WV. It was wonderful to see all of the milestones that you have reached. You and your Mommy are the most amazing people.

Give your Mommy some extra snuggles! They really do make things feel better!

Wow! What a device. When Cameron was little they had a chair we strapped him into but it didn't have the plastic tubing - what a way to freak a child out! Yikes!
Love,
Rebecca

someone just ripped my heart out and stomped on the floor with it..kill it and be done with it. that is the worst in-humane contraption I have seen in a long time..I am so sorry for you and Maxwell. My heart aches and bleeds for you both.

Hugs and kisses to you both

What a horrible contraption. How come the medical community can find the money/time to create things like Rogaine and Viagra, but they can't seem to invent a less tortorous device for poor little kiddos like Max and Cedie?
