Today, for the first time since he was born, five months ago, we saw Samuel's face with no tape or tubes! We knew he was a good lookin' guy... today confirmed that he is absolutely a beautiful little boy!! It brought tears to my eyes... actually, that happened a lot today :)
The Bronchoscopy went really well - his airway looks great! There was absolutely nothing to fix. So, Samuel got the tracheostomy. It was a scary day... but a great day. He looks amazing :) And comfortable - all things considered of course :) Not gonna lie, it's a bit intimidating to look at the trache right now... but we have been assured that as it heals, it gets easier. Bottom line, no more things stuck to Samuel's face, up his nose, or in his mouth - YEA! Thank you so much for all of your thoughts and prayers!
