E Bay Comes to Elk Ridge

Some of you may remember that Ammon wanted to see if we could buy a Cough Assist machine from E Bay when he found out that Shriner's Hospital wouldn't let us take it home with us. We had a good laugh over that one but today, 2 years later, he got the Cough Assist machine thanks to the work of his pulmonologist, Dr. Pfeffer.  The respiratory therapist brought it over and taught me how to use it. It basically breathes in for 3 seconds and then sucks the breath out at a higher rate for another 3 seconds. Ammon's lips would go out and then would be sucked back in looking like he had the g-force of a fighter jet. When the series was over and the mask was taken off, we asked, "How was that?" He got a huge smile on his face and said, "That was gooooooddddd!"

I've said it before and I'll say it again -- he's weird!
