100 Hours Of Vesting

Lucy has officially logged in 100 hours on her vest since we received it mid-October of last year! She wears it everyday for at least a half an hour when she is doing well and her lungs are clear. We up the treatment time if she is fighting lung infection or wheezing or coughing from allergies.

I can't even imagine how many hours she has logged on her nebulizer/mask, but that machine doesn't keep track of usage! If I were to take a wild guess, it would be in the 400 hour range! That makes for a whole lot of Barney, Caillou and Elmo movies!


  1. My daughter won't watch anything but Caillou during chest therapy. I'm starting to get the episodes memorized.

  2. How did you go about getting the new vest (the pink one) for Lucy? My daughter has had the Vest for a year and a half now and has only ever had that old, itchy, awful black thing! I think she'd love that pink one much better, and the fact that it is washable had me sold!

  3. Jess, I'm going to leave you a message on your blog with the same info because I don't know if you'll come back to this page, but for everyone else that is reading...

    there should be a number in the vest machine that you can call for repairs or upgrades. For Hill-Rom: 1-800-426-4224


All your comments are appreciated! I'd love to hear from you...
