Small update! Good update! 

Tina has continued to be converstional throughout the last couple days! Today she got to eat a real breakfast for the first time. She had pancakes with syrup, eggs and hasbrows! She swallowed like a champ with no aspiration. They have to keep the “boxing” mits on her hands though. Nick and I think she keeps wanting to pull the trach out so that’s why they’re on.  She looked down at her hands while the mits were on and said “ what the f#^* are these.” :)  

In other good news the trach is set to be closed and removed on Monday!!!! Huge news. 

That’s all we have for now. Thought we would spread the news!
