Hannah has chronic lung diseases from being premature. She was pretty much ventilator depended for the first year of having a trach. Then a year of just when she was a sleep, just at night and now has been off the ventilator for a year!!!
The only throat problems I was told she had since the beginning was that her vocal cord looked a bit sluggish, but not for sure paralyzed.
We originally started off at children s hospital in Vancouver and now are at a smaller hospital on the island that can handle trach care.
