Owen Airway Looks Good!

We got very good news about Owen's airway today. It looks like it has minimal swelling and no scarring which is the best news. It's possible he has weakened throat muscles from not having to use them for so long, but mostly the only treatment they think he needs is more growth and time. So we'll see.

We're a little confused now about our stay at Kosair. Now that he doesn't need any type of surgery, we're not sure if they want us to stay there or not. Yesterday they were saying that he would stay at Kosair until he went home, and today we were asked several times about our plans to stay or go back to University. We would prefer not to move him again, but hopefully that will resolve itself in the next few days. So many things to think about!!! At least little Owen doesn't need a tracheostomy or something crazy like that. A little payer answered.
