Toothless Trache

Another tooth bits the dust....but the tooth fairy came in OR and she let me keep this one!! I just about cried....thanks OR you made my day.Well here is my rock star! He is breathing on his own, no bipap, no vent! He is sleeping and NOT desating at all....OMG! He looks awesome, usually he looks so pale and it takes him forever to come off anesthesia, but NOT today. We took him down 2 hours ago, had the procedure, recovery and he's back in his room......he's back and better then before he went down, WOW! He went down to the OR on room air and no bipap and we could see him obstruct here and there, awake. He's sleeping, on nothing, and breathing better then ever!!!!! Can you tell I'm one excited MOMMA! They did go in and put new tubes in his ears too....the left (which was out) looked great, but the right (which was in) was clogged and gross. Now we don't have to worry about that. The clear/white tubing is just direct humid air going into the trach to keep it moist...other then that he is doing ALL BY HIMSELF!!!!! HUGE SMILE ~

Danny looks great with his new accessory!!!! I have been thinking about you guys all day and I am glad everything went well. The tooth fairy needs to get Danny something really nice as a reward for most interesting tooth retrieval!
