**** NANAKWAZ!!!*****

You have to read this article on CNN.com

http://www.cnn.com/2008/HEALTH/11/19/windpipe.transplant/index.html

It's about this woman who had a trachea transplant that used her own stem cells and now her windpipe is pretty much totally normal and healed. I just sent it to my DH and told him that's something that we'll have to keep an eye on for the long term future. Can you imagine if a surgery like that became the norm and they could fix our wee one's airways? Or better yet, their esophoguses?? I would be freaking THRILLED!

  • OMG!!  That is awesome!!  How much would that change our kids' lives?!  Modern medicine never ceases to amaze me!

    Thank you for sharing.  I have already sent it to DH to look at when he gets up.   I get so excited over these things!
