Getting a new look TODAY!

I can't tell you how extremely exited I am today for Alex!  Today he is having reconstructive surgery on his trach (hole) scar and it will be a beautiful thin line that will fit in with the rest of the creases on his neck!  He insisted from the beginning of our journey that he wanted no more surgeries no matter how big or small and didn't care about the gaping hole in his neck left from having a trach for over a year.  3 years in recovery and mentally moving forward he has decided to go ahead with this surgery and take one more step to normalcy.  Those of us that see him on a daily basis don't notice it as it has been a part of who he is now.  This is a brave step for Alex as he has been thru so much already however I know he wants girls to look at him as he once was..... Although Alex thinks he is the cream of the crop and would be a prize for any lucky girl!   I am extremely proud of him and his continued progress in our 3 years of recovery and soooo excited that he is getting a little cosmetic surgery to boost that even bigger ego lol!  Kiss that hole goodbye cause Mr Hotmess will be looking extra gorgeous!!!!  He will be in surgery for an hour and in recovery for 3 then we go home. He wears bandage for 7 days then we get to reveal the new neck lol!  Keep those prayers coming..... HE AIN'T FINISHED WITH ALEX JUST YET!  Xoxo
