The new trach is in and you can hear Alex's words.....THANK YOU GOD! What a big step for today! SOOOO WONDERFUL to hear a little of his voice! It will only get stonger and we will be able to hear his voice get stronger. GOD YOU ARE AWESOME... I was sooo not expecting to be able to hear him with all the swelling he has going on! What an amazing day with an amazing kid.... every day is really just one step closer to going home! YAY!
