Ava's problem is her airway. She was born with an airway that collapses on itself, so she had airway reconstruction. We always have to have anesthesia consults appts before any surgery and she has to be intubated through her nose. She's given steroids and abx for every surgery. It's an ordeal. She has acquired subglottic stenosis from repeated intubations. I understand the worry!
