We just found out that DD is going to be getting a trach. We knew it was a posibility we'd get one after her brain surgery, but it sounds like we're going to get one before now. They still need to intubate her (which has all the same risks for her as it did before with her difficult airway).
The doctors also want to re-evaluate her for the nissen in the two weeks we have before surgery. They're thinking about doing this right before or right after to keep her from vomiting with the halo on.
Blech. I have so many mixed feelings right now, but mostly I just wish this sweet baby didn't have to deal with all of this crap on top of everything else she's already had to deal with. I wish so much that I could make it all just go away.
