So let’s jump straight in with the good news first – Emerson doesn’t have pneumonia! We went to our regular pediatricians office this morning, and saw the nurse practitioner Mona (my friend Abby had the day off). She said her lungs sounded perfect, and her oxygen saturation was up to 98% today. She said she would call later to get the reading from the radiologist at CHP, then call me with results. Basically, she didn’t think she had pneumonia, but would defer to the radiologist’s reading, since she said it may be so early in the illness that only an x-ray could catch it.
After seeing her, we went downstairs to see Emerson’s cardiologist (their practice is in the same building), for him to look at the enlarged section of her heart on the x-rays. He was super nice, and took the time to look at it right away between patients, then came to talk to us in the waiting room & check on Emmie. He said he didn’t think she had pneumonia, and that her heart was fine.
