What is a Trach?

A friend of mine asked me about Bella’s trach last night. 

The two sites below have some really good information on them explaining what a trach is and why they are necessary.



This little guy is well enough to not be on the vent, but his trach is still in place.  Some kids only need the vent at night.  We hope that Bella will get to this point sooner than later. 



This little one has had her trach removed.  It’s called decannalization.  It is a day we are looking forward to!  With all of her other scars, what’s one more?  We are so grateful she is alive and with us!

your so sweet, your going to come sit with my baby while your baby is still in the hospital. I guess the one nice thing about PICU is you can go home and sleep and know someone is by her bed all the time. It makes life a little easier.
