11/6/12 from Mom

Good evening, Shane had a busy day today with about four hours of group and individual therapies. Late this afternoon,after several Doctors discussed removing the trach it was determined that it could be removed. Around six o’clock it was determined that he could be decannulated. The process takes about sixty seconds. Shane was moved to a special unit in the rehab ( similar to an ICU ) just to be monitored for the night. So far so good and he was very happy to have the trach out. He was told that it would take a few days for the whole to close. Tomorrow is a big day, as Shane will be fitted for his own personal wheelchair. All your support and prayers are greatly appreciated by Shane and our entire family.
