The Newest Member of the Naked Neck Club!!!

Waiting for it all to begin, wearing her "got a trach?" shirt. Now we need one that says "got a trach?" on the front and "neither do I!" on the back!


"See Mom, Elmo doesn't have a trach, and pretty soon, I won't either!"


NAKED NECK!



The most gorgeous tan line I've ever seen!

Hey on the shirt just grab a fabric marker and write "former" between the "I am" and the "neck breather" on the back, I left extra room for that :0)

She looks and sounds great. Glad we were able to make it down to see you guys even if Milo was a bit loud!

YAHHHH! MARISSA! I didn't know it would happen this quickly after you posted last. I love the idea for the shirt. John and I have joked about starting a clothing line for kids with vents, g-tubes and trachs. More accessible clothing that fits better and has awesome sayings like the one you suggested. We are excited for Marissa. Her neck is beautiful!
