Alesia seems to take very well the trach and the g-tube and she seems very happy that she does not need to have tubes in her mouth and nose.
She is recovering very well and the possibility to return home is closer and closer to become a reality. Some preparation are necessary though because it seems that she will not be able to breath without support for some time. Therefore she will need:
  • Medical Ventilator, Oxygen concentrator, Humidifier - to help her with breathing
  • A Suction Machine - to clean secretions from her little mouth and nose (because I can not swallow effectively yet)
  • A Cough Assist machine to help eliminate secretion from the lungs
  • My parents to do some training to take care of me
