is the “IRREVERSIBLE TRACHEOSTOMY”, according to three out of four ENT doctors.
First , I was on two respiratory machines for a year and a half and could barely leave the house, let alone take William to the park, for fear of suffocation.They said I would need a trach tube in my neck for life. When THAT came out last October, they said this hole could never be closed, and I would never be able to swim again or I would drown instantly.
I will be swimming in a week or so.
This is a good thing.
