We are praying that we receive the news this week that Tricia is free to go home for good. Her staples and trach are out, her strength and breathing continues to improve, and she is finally gaining weight! School starts for our kids August 26, and it has been our goal for the past few months to be home by that date.
Tricia has been scheduled for the nissen fundoplication in late September if it decided that she still needs it, and of course we'll be back to Duke every couple of weeks for appts, but it will be so nice to be back in our own home and getting back to a more "normal" routine after being away for so long.
I'll keep you updated!
