There was a time when Josie had no airflow on the right side of her nose. The tumor and inflammation around it had completely blocked it off. During those times, every now and then, she would breath out of her mouth. It wasn’t panting. It was breathing. You could tell because her mouth was closed, but the sides would puff in and out with each breath.You can see it in the video, along with her awesome glare when she’s being recorded.
Towards the end of January, one of her nosebleeds managed to break loose parts of the tumor and cleared the right side a bit – allowing airflow. She hasn’t had any breathing problems since then.
Until now. The mouth breather has returned.
