So yesterday.....

We took Little Miss Calleigh to Children's for her Pulmo Lab tests. Anyone who knows Calleigh, knows our Respiratory issues with her. And also knows her weight gain issues.

So our Pediatrician, whom I love, wanted to have a few tests done, just to rule out some problems.

Yesterday was the first part of those tests. The Sweat Chloride test is done to diagnose Cystic Fibrosis.

They use a machine to coax the glands to produce sweat. Then they tape a plastic cover over some gauze to collect the sweat and leavae it all bandaged up for 30 minutes. After that the sweat is analyzed.

Miss Calleigh did not appreciate the bandage at all, but did fine with the rest.

We also had some bloodwork done to check Thyroid functions.
