Decannulation done. Trach out as of 4pm on April 26th. Hello Kitty is protecting the stoma which will take about 3-5 months to close, unless ENT stitches it shut first which is what I am hoping for. We see him tomorrow morning. Feel like a ton has been lifted off of us – and Megan looks so much better. Swallowing everything is a bit of a challenge and so is clearing the stuff in her chest, but I think she is doing okay . Really nice to hold her without something getting in the way. Tomorrow is Pat and my anniversary and i cant think of a better present.
