Regarding the tracheostomy…the surgeons weren’t able to schedule it along with the “mickey button” today so it’s tentatively scheduled for next Thursday. Noah’s left lung collapsed again today, so it was good that the surgery didn’t take place. The RT’s continue to do chest pounding, now with a puff of abuterol to open up his bronchials. Jason and I prayed last night that if the surgery wasn’t supposed to take place today it wouldn’t, so this a.m. when the x-ray showed the white out again and the surgeon’s couldn’t coordinate their schedules, we had a peace about it. We know the trach will help, along with the “mickey” button, but for some reason, God didn’t open that door today.
Our friend, Dr. Julie, will be doing a consult on him…we’ve asked her to do some acupuncture on Noah to help stimulate his nerves and muscles. She’s the one who introduced me to Mr. Blessitt. Anyway, for seven years I would wake up EVERY night from 2a.m. to 4a.m. with a lot of back and abdominal pain. Doc Julie is the one who helped me sleep again and have zero back pain.
