Before the procedure
and WAY too early. We got up at 4:30 am to be there on time. Shep kept thinking that when the docs were talking us through procedures, he was talking to them, and he wouldn't stop smiling.
And this says it all.
This is how Shep feels about his trach. And, no he is not trying to yank it out, unfortunately.
He is holding on for dear life
and at least 6-8 more months.
Thanks for praying.
We are very disappointed.
But at the same time, we are truly glad that we are not writing the story of Shepherd's life.
But instead someone with infinite wisdom and infinite beauty dots every "i" and crosses every "t."
Thank You all so much for praying, your prayers were VERY evident in the strength God gave us to hope.
