Yet another update

Talked to my friend's husband today. The plan for their little girl is to get a tracheostomy and a feeding tube put in sometime next week. This should help her breath on her own, without aspirating. It also means that she will be able to move out of ICU! After she heals from having the trach and tube put in, she will undergo surgery to fix the fistula in her brain. Once she recovers from that, and her parents learn how to take care of the trach and the feeding tube, she can hopefully come home! :o)

Sounds so scary, but I am glad they are finding resolution. They are in our prayers.
