More Cute Trachless Pictures and a Video!

Rissa had a great night and we are home now! Her sats stayed between 95-97 while she slept and are 100% while awake. So awesome! Her stoma is now down to a very small size and hopefully will be closing all the way soon. She knows her trach is gone but she really hasn't made a big deal about it. Just life as usual for our little sunshine!

Dr. P and Rissa, just before the bronch/decan. She is the wonderful woman who has taken such great care of our Rissa Roo.

The panda in a nurse uniform that the hospital gave Rissa. She named it "Doctor".

Sleepy girl at the end of her big day.

Dr. P again, this morning after Marissa passed all the tests and was given the green light!

Thanks for all your love and support. We could not have done this without all of you and we are so lucky to have such great people along for the journey. Keep watching, this girl is going places!

She looks so good...and now I know what Dr. P looks like! Very much what I thought she looked like from your description. And the 3rd picture down looks like she's listening to her thoughts...lol....
