Twenty-Three Months

I can't believe my Little Man is almost two! We've had a pretty eventful past month and are ready to ring in the New Year.

Since Noah's trachea reconstruction surgery and latest scope he has made some progress. He is now swallowing his saliva and we no longer need bibs. Yippee!! On occasion, we can hear him inhale while he is playing...especially when his neck is extended. We have been given a Passy-Muir valve to place on Noah's trach. It allows him to inhale through the trach, but blocks any exhale and forces it out through his mouth and nose. Unfortunately, Mr. Stinkpot has not taken it like a fish to water...it's more like a boy to water. He STRUGGLES to exhale and will create such air pressure that he pops the valve off his trach. I knew that learning to breathe would be a long process for my Little Man, but seriously, this is hard {for me and Mr. Man}.

In addition to the adventures in breathing, Bubs was hit with a trach infection shortly before Christmas and the flu shortly after. It has been a month of vomiting, antibiotics, more vomiting, and even more vomiting. Because of the lack of eating {or rather keeping it down}, our Little Man has lost quite a bit of weight. His latest stats are:

Weight: 28 pounds 3 ounces
Height: 33 inches

Bubs is telling you that this is his last month of being ONE.
I'm almost TWO! Rock Out!
