Pyper has breathing issues and is taken to our local hospital before being transported by ambulance to Mission Children’s Hospital in Asheville. Her oxygen levels were dropping into the 80’s, she was all stuffed up and struggling to breath.

They tested her for RSV, but this came back negative. They proceeded to do a viral screening panel that tested for about 16 other viruses, all came back negative.  She was essentially diagnosed with bronchiolitis. While there, they introduced her to supplemental oxygen to keep her levels up.  Also while there, they did identify that her Thyroid was not functioning properly, and started her on a daily hormone medication.
