I am exhausted... LONG DAY... just wanted to get on real quick and thank you all for the prayers, love and support today as it was a very successful surgery!  They did laser surgery on the scar tissue, separated the vocal chords and there is a balloon in between them so they can heal apart.  They also downsized the trach from a 6 to a 4 and hopefully if all goes as planned the trach can come out in about 6 weeks!!  YAY!  He was a trooper today and once again... GOD IS GOOD!  We got to come home today and he has been in bed since... resting and asking a million questions and having us google every thing under the sun, lol!  His throat hurts pretty bad, on a scale of 1-10 he says 10.... he had chicken noodle soup for dinner and one of Miss Bonnie's brownies... go figure!  LONG DAY... I had 2 hours of sleep so I am heading to bed at 9:40 pm... hoping Mr. Alex sleeps as well!  Will keep you posted on his progress tomorrow... for now... G'NITE and THANK YOU...your words of encouragement always come at the right moment and have a way of bringing sunshine into our days!

THANK YOU GOD FOR ONE MORE DAY WITH MY HANDSOME BOY and for a successful surgery today!
