For those who have read the blog for awhile, I have shared several times the internal struggle I have had about Peyton's trach. It took me much longer than Travis to accept the trach and the role it will cotinue to play in our lives - however long that may be. Although I will never stop hoping that Peyton will eventually be decannulated, I no longer see the trach as a barrier to life now I see it as a mechanism to living life as fully as possible for Peyton. For me it was my moment of truth when I came to that realization for myversionofmylife it was her "aha" moment. Please take a minute to read her words - not only are they beautifully written but they capture so perfectly the same struggle I had been having. It's not often I "meet" people who truly understand the emotions that come along with this journey so when I read posts like what myversionofmylife has written and know that she totally gets it I feel a little less alone in the world.
