YAY!!! A RUNNY NOSE!!!

Check out my big ol' snot!!! Yucky for you maybe, but very exciting for us! See my nose never, ever runs. Some kiddos with repaired choanal atresia (born with closed nasal passages) have constant runny noses and others (like me) have the opposite problem...all of the snot runs backward. This can cause a lot of coughing, congestion, vomiting, etc. And Mom and my nurses have to suction my nose all the time since the passageways are so narrow.

But for some odd reason today, my nose started running...and running...and running. Mommy was thrilled to get to wipe my snot over and over again! It was quite funny! :)

Enjoy the thrill while it lasts. We wish we would have bought stock in MD--Evan goes through half a roll every day (not counting the sheets he just unrolls for entertainment)!
