In her caption, Moniece explained that that her smoking has also affected her son Kam in the past when he suffered from Respiratory Syncytial Virus Infection (RSV).
“When Kam was 4wks old he got RSV. For 5 weeks he was in severe discomfort and his little body worked overtime for oxygen. it was very scary. So we slept sitting up (he was on my chest in the baby b’jorn). I set my alarm and every 4hrs I put this little mask on his face and it was sad to me. He hated it. I felt so bad. Now here I am wearing his same little mask at home on the breathing machine. What’s crazy about this, is that the pain I feel In my chest was self inflicted by choosing to smoke cigarettes. I spent all week in and out of the hospital. Today my doctor told me I had two mini strokes, my right lung was inflamed, but clear, my blood work was A1 (no cancerous cells etc) no abnormalities growing in my throat or lungs. Perfect heart. God blessed me and I’m still on my very hard very painful journey to quit. She said my lungs are getting rid of the damaged bronchi and and reproducing new bronchi. There’s nothing they can do except to try to make me comfortable while my body goes through this process. I was told total restoration of my lungs would be about 3 yrs! CRAZY! #iquitforkam”
Thankfully no cancerous cells were found but best wishes to Mo as she begins her three year journey of full lung restoration.
