My Whole Expanse I Cannot See…

I formulate infinity stored deep inside of me…

In nine hours

Category: Life

So, in like, nine hours, I’ll be getting a fresh trach (the little plastic tube in my throat), and as an added bonus, a sinus wash. I sinus wash is pretty much exactly what it sounds like, so I won’t go into any further detail.

I’m going into this feeling really uneasy, more so than I’ve felt in a really long time. I have reasons, I know the whys. My unease isn’t irrational. Not that knowing any of these things makes me feel much better.

    Hello, My name is Brenda and I sent you a message on your post. I hope you received it and I hope to hear from you soon.As to the In 9 hours… I know life always in some way or another throws us a curve, but I feel you have the tenacity to strike at it! Win loose or draw you are and always will be a fighter in life and in what life “throws” at you!

    How did it go? Hope you are home safely.

    I am curious. Trachs in the US seem exceedingly complicated, generally. We swap my son’s out frequently in the comfort of the living room.

    Michael, I received your June 22 post (which seemed incomplete) in my email, but I noticed it isn’t on your blog. I hope everything’s okay with you, and the trach change etc. wasn’t as bad as you’d feared. Relax a while, and write when you’re feeling it.
