Sometime tomorrow afternoon, my baby may be losing his trach. Dr. White will make the call when he rounds Monday. I have requested he not decannulate until I'm able to get to the hospital. I have a meeting at 9:30 that should only last a short time, then it's off to the hospital with my mother in law and older boys.
I'm scared, nervous, anxious, thrilled and sad. This is a new chapter in our lives. No more machines, no more oxygen, no more suction machine. No more supplies taking up his entire room. He went in the hospital nearly a month ago a little baby with a trach. He's coming home a little boy breathing on his own!
Here he is, showing off his cap.
