Update: Day One with the Trach

Thomas finally got some sleep last night, which was a big relief for everyone. In his twenty-four hours without a breathing tube in, he could never get comfortable. Even though I held him all night, he only slept about three hours total.

Even though we were disappointed to learn that Thomas would need a tracheostomy to breathe on his own for now, it was worth it to see him really rest and wake up and play with us this afternoon.

His toes are apparently old news today (they were the coolest thing ever last week - see photo on the side), but the little bunny his day care lady, Miss Bertha, gave him has suddenly gained status. He will take it far out away from his eyes and then bring it really close again and again with his super-focused curious look he gets from his dad. I imagine him thinking, "NEAR ...... Far...."

My mom says that this page http://www.tracheostomy.com/index.html has great information on trachs. Including how to spell them, which is all I've had time to learn there so far. Check it out if you're interested.
