My amazing little assistant has been cleared to have his trach removed!
Today, the Keeper of the Cheerios got the call telling her to have him at Children's at 9:30 in the morning. His doctors will remove it, and he'll stay overnight. If all goes well, sometime on Wednesday, he'll be home, trach-free for the first time in over eight years!
This is a huge deal. When he got the trach, his medical team expected he'd have it for maybe a year. May 31st was the eight year mark. I cannot even begin to tell you how incredibly excited (and nervous!) we are for him. He's overcome so much to get to this point, and we're so proud of him.
He's nervous and not quite sure what life will be like without a trach, but he's excited, too.
It's going to be a whole new world around here for a while, in a good way. :)
You can tweet your message to him @TeamLosh or send it to him via Facebook here. And thank you to everyone who has already sent him a message of congratulations and has been there, cheering him on through the last nine years.
