Well, we're sick again. Yep. Again. That's three times since we came home, in case you were counting. This time its a "cold" so no antiobiotics. (I can't tell a cold from tracheitis, though -- they look like the same sick kid to me.)

We had to see Dr. O at the pulmonologist since our regular doctor was on call at the hospital. Dr. O was pleasantly surprised to see how well Michael was handling being sick, so that was good news. The better he handles illness, the less likely they are to want to wait to remove his trach if he is ready to remove it during winter (respiratory virus season). So, that is good news for us. The other plus about illness is that it brings out Michael's voice. (I have no idea why, but it does.) So, we're sitting around enjoying listening to Michael coo and whine at us. (Sounds horrible to say it that way, doesn't it?)

In the meantime, Michael is still struggling with swallowing. Sometimes he gets it, most of the time he doesn't. We have another speech appointment today, so we'll see what happens. I've been warned that this appointment is mostly "paperwork."
