"Nananana, hey hey hey, goodbye!"
Garren took hold of that thing and threw it on the ground! He plans to ceremoniously run over it with his wheelchair later today!
Woohoo! What a giant step! Praise God!
Thank you all for your prayers. Obviously this is a big step for Garren. We were scheduled to go home tomorrow, but we have the option to stay over the weekend for observation if we want to. On the one hand, it would be nice to be home. On the other, having so recently removed the trach, it would be nice to be near medical attention should we need it.
Garren still is working on swallowing. His talking is getting better, a lot less spelling. He continues to talk about the tickle in his throat. We continue to pray that his throat gets stronger so he can swallow soon.
