BPD

BPD(bronchopulmonary dysplasia) causes the lungs(bronchioles & alveoli) to be weak, scared and damaged. A small little cold can cause a part to collapse. In the picture on the left is a picture of Hannahs lungs when we first came home, and on the right is a picture from march. The arrows pointing to wards a white stream, that is a part of the lung that is now collapsed from BPD. That is why it is sooo important for children living with BPD to stay as healthy as possible
