Today Jessica took Namine to see Dr. Denny, the plastic surgeon. After the results of the sleep study, CT scan, and bronchoscopy, he said that she’s a good candidate for having a jaw distraction. We know she’s doing well, but it’s still reassuring to hear a doctor say it.
Namine will be scheduled for the operation sometime between December and January. She’ll be in the hospital for about a week, and I don’t remember how long she’ll have the hardware.
Namine should lose the trach by next summer.
