Foot surgery reschedule

Or so we are led to believe. Ortho called today, and they want to put Namine back on the schedule for having her feet repaired. The (tentative) date is October 18, but you’ll forgive me if I’m a little skeptical. I only hope her doctor doesn’t get stuck in Canada again.

Fatten her up already!

Namine has had weight issues all her life. Right now she’s stuck at 17-18 pounds, and it doesn’t look like she’s going to put on more weight any time soon.

We’ve tried. So has she, as you can see in the picture.

But on to other serious matters. Namine also had a cardiology appointment, and I got a call from pulmonology about her decannulation. We finally have a set date, and it’s coming up soon. More after the jump!

More pictures, less trach

I had already uploaded all of the original pictures from when we took Namine to get her birthday pictures taken. Jessica asked me to upload all of the pictures that had effects done to them, such as sepia tones, black and white, et cetera. I’ve uploaded the 5×7 so far. I’ll try to get to the rest of them tonight.

Decannulation is a go

As Jessica posted earlier, Namine passed her sleep study. This means one thing: decannulation! The next step is to get Namine better. She’s still coughing and hacking quite a bit, and she needs to be fully recovered before they’ll take out the trach.


Hello all, It was a not so fun and fun day today.  We had a visit back at teach vent clinic where they took a trach asperate, or culture,  to see what is growing if anything. As we ran some errands I got a call for different breathers for Namine. While on the phone the […]
