Eric has three new very important women in his life, under normal circumstances I might have been jealous, but I thank them every day for their tremendous work. They worked him hard today, and they will continue to do so five days a week. I’m talking about his Physical Therapist (PT), Occupational Therapist (OT) and Speech Language Pathologist (SLP). I missed the session they had with Eric today, which is a bummer, but talking to them it sounds like they were extremely thrilled with Eric’s work today. We started the long process of removing the trachea; first step today was to deflate the “balloon” just a little, which gave room in his airway for salvia in his mouth. Today was just a test to see how Eric would do. I know it sounds silly in our regular world, but for Eric this was huge; he managed to swallow salvia on command. I guess he even made a noise; I say, of course he did, he’s a Davidson and that family sure knows how to talk. I’m married into the family so I’m more quiet..
