OOOPS! I forgot to update you on T's status. Well, as of Saturday, she would have been 5 days out from surgery and doing well. Trying to eat, learning to swallow again and also the docs did her first trach change on her new site. We are applying the antibiotic Bactroban on the areas where her drains we and continuing anbx for the next 12 days. Occasionally she will cough and gag due to the stent being in her trachea and this still seems to be very sore for her. But other than her uncomfortable coughs, battle wounds where the drains were and her covered incision site above her new trach--you wouldn't even have known she had surgery. Thank you for all the healing thoughts and prayers being sent this way!!!
