The post title says it all.

As we said before, Namine’s jaw distraction would occur sometime last this year or early next year. But Jessica got a call today from Children’s Hospital that they would do Namine’s distraction on December 1 of this year. Needless to say (but I’m going to say it anyway), we’re very excited! The sooner the better, and Namine is well on her way to getting rid of the trach by summer 2010.

Namine is very close to rolling over all by herself. In physical therapy today she gave the therapist a run for her money, but started to cooperate near the end. Then after therapy was more or less over, Namine proved her worth as The World’s Most Stubborn Child by nearly rolling over trying to get a toy at her side.
