Tomorrow they will bronch Faith to see if the swelling has gone down. If things look good they will pull the breathing tube- and that my friends is when we find out if the surgery was successful.
Right now Faith is basically breathing with a trach in her nose. When that tube is pulled, the on-her-own breathing begins.
I am not trying to be pessimistic or show a lack of Faith but I do not think tomorrow will be the day the tube is pulled. The average timeline is 5-10 days- tomorrow is only day 5. We all know Faith adheres to a timeline entirely of her own.
If it's pulled tomorrow and she breathes- awesome. If not, a few more days is not going to hurt.
And for those of you who've been wondering....no voice yet (remember she still has a "trach in her nose"). When that tube comes out- so will her voice.
Here's to unexpected surprises,
