Today was a day to mark as our first “Episode” with SMA (Spinal Muscular Atrophy). Whitnee had started a cold on Thursday (1st). We dealt with the cold as instinct told us to and made sure she was getting lots of liquids, naps, vitamins etc… she seemed to be doing well with the congestion, as slight as it was, and stayed playful for that day thru Friday. Friday we were able to win a battle with the insurance and get Whitnee the “RSV” shot she needed. We were even able to get her on somewhat of a routine on the cough assist machine that we had received, yet another battle won, the Saturday previous.
