My son Ethan had an incident w a shotgun. He is now missing 3-4cm of his upper & lower jaw, his bottom lip & his chin. He's now has a tracheotomy & feeding tube. His jaw was wired shut for 8 weeks. The tracheotomy must remain in until the reconstruction of his face is complete. He just had a procedure done where they removed blood vessels from his forehead & transferred it to his chin. He is getting skin grafts from his own body to prepare for the bone which will be taken from his skull & placed into the jaw. Please help my son. Help him be able to be the outgoing child. He's been depressed & is not the Ethan we know. Anything helps. Thanks.
