Slow And Steady Wins The Race...

Right?
That's the course they are taking with Ben.
Trach Collar by day...Vent at night.
The docs feel like they are pushing Ben too hard,
so instead they will rest his lungs at night.
He's just STILL not ready for 24 hours of trach collar.
This picture was taken this morning.
Ben still has his PICC line in.
Once a week they change his dressing.
The area has to be sterile.
Hence the mask.

That sounds like a good game plan! Good luck. Ditto to everyone else's comments.

Ever on my mind...checking blogs several times a day = praying for Ben several times a day...

Love you, been thinking of you. Spent the weekend in Disneyland (our mini make a wish, felt like Charlotte was with us) and wished you could all be back in Disneyworld instead of in the PICU. Thank goodness for memories and hope!
