Just when everything was going so well, we are now back sliding downward. Mia has been feeling pretty good the first week of February. Her cough had subsided and had gone from getting the medicine three times a day to just once in the evening. She also hadn't had a syncope episode since late January. We were certainly hoping things were on an upswing. Last night the cough started to increase again and in the evening she had her first syncope episode of the month. I don't know if we can ever really keep them away and perhaps this is just her norm now but it still continues to be such a heartbreaking experience. We upped her cough medication and will give an extra dose of the vasodilator today. With any luck we can help turn this back around before it gets any worse.
