How Fast?

I could get used to days like this. We made it to the pulmonologist (lung doctor). He came in, took one look at Garren and said "So, does he still need that trach?" Nancy and I looked at him and I said "Well, that's what we're hoping you can tell us!"

So we talked for a few minutes, talked about Garren's progress and what he's been doing. After some discussion the doctor looked at me and said "How fast do you want to make this happen?" I was thinking "Are you kidding? How fast? How about yesterday?" I said "As fast as we can!" He left and came back with a smaller size trach. He explained that he would change Garren's trach to the smaller size, and in about two weeks we go back for a bronchoscopy, at which time he will probably remove the trach altogether! If Garren could have, I think he would have danced out of the office! We are all very excited about this.

All these weeks of hearing everyone's opinions and speculations. One visit with the one guy who really knows what he's talking about is all we needed. We are soo excited!
