We're HOME!!! It's hard to believe- we were expecting to stay 2-3 weeks and ended up staying 8 days. Woohoo! Taking the limited sedation route really paid off.
Tomorrow Faith goes back to the hospital for a bronchoscopy. We have to go through the whole O.R. rigmarole and she will be put under anesthesia again. This is to ensure the graft is still in place and everything is healing well. Faith will undergo bronchs like this for the next few weeks.
I'm curious to speak with our ENT tomorrow and get her take on Faith's breathing (which is pretty heavy and often times labored). We're thinking she just needs to learn to clear her secretions, which is probably painful at the moment.
I will update after the bronch tomorrow.
Keep the Faith!
