William got his vest on January 16th of this year, just 3 and 1/2 months ago. At the suggestion of the respiratory therapist, we began his sessions with "two 20 minute sessions daily or four 20 minute sessions if ill," but at the request of his pulmonologist, we have been doing "four 30 minute sessions daily or four 40-48 minutes sessions if ill." As you might suppose, this takes up a great deal of his time. It has proven to be very beneficial, but not as perfect as we had hoped. He is now waiting for another machine to assist the Vest, called the "Cough Assist." It will be used in conjunction with the all of the equipment he already has. We are praying that all of these things together will keep his lungs clear. We realize how important airway clearance is for his future health.
Last night he hit a milestone: 100 hours!
