The surgeon is going in again with the camera dec.1st to check his trach. he probably will not be doing anymore ballooning to open up his trach. aparemtly its not doing very much dialating of his trach. the scartissue is attached to his vocal cords so 99 % chance he will have to have the major surgery where they will have to remove some ribs to rebuild his trachea when he is two. he will be placed in a drug induced coma for abolut two weeks unless his trachea miraculously grows enough for him to breathewith out the stoma... also they did a hearing test on Ayden today and he has major hearing loss in his left ear. he has some fluid behing his ear drum(common for trach patients) when the put him to sleep to do the camera they will check his ears and if there is fluid they will put tubes in... His mother is heart broken with the news about the trachea. but we new he probably would need the other surgery... please keep Ayden and his parents in your prayers..
