Merry Christmas everyone, I know it has been a long time since I have posted anything. I will try and be brief and let you know how things are going.

The trach was removed in July and then TR went through 8 weeks of Hyperbaric Oxygen treatment….that was to aid in the closing and healing of the trach. Thank God it did heal! TR has had to have 3 more dilations since June because his body keeps producing scar tissue in his esophagus and airway around the trach site. He had one yesterday and Dr. Chhetri is hoping that the production of scar tissue has slowed down and maybe he won’t need to do the procedure as often.
TR is still not able to eat, he can take tiny sips of water and nectar. We are praying that after this last dilation that he can tolerate eating some soups and maybe soft foods.

We continue to ask God to miraculously heal TR’s throat and allow him the ability to swallow again.
We hope you all have a Blessed Christmas and a Happy & Healthy New Year. And again thank you for walking alongside us & praying for us as we navigate this journey.
