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.

The major concern for us is that Namine will have her trach out by then. (Decannulation is still on for September 14.) So when they put her out for the surgery, they’ll intubate her. Now, she hasn’t been intubated since before she got the trach, and we don’t know how she’ll do. That depends largely, of course, on how she does with the trach removal itself.

Like with so much else, we’ll play it by ear.

    Good luck to Namine. How long is the recovery period?
