A note from Mommy:

Today she is five.  For many reasons 5 is a milestone, one of those being that she starts kindergarten in just a few days.  But 5 is a milestone from a medical standpoint as well.  When she was just months old we had a goal to have the trach out before she went off to school but that is not to be.  And that is okay.  Completely and totally okay.  I couldn't have said that two years ago but I can now.  I know other parents struggle with coming to terms with a trach that is long-standing and potentially life long but I am finally to the point it isn't something I worry about any longer.  The trach doesn't make anything about her life less than because she is and will always be greater than the sum of all of her parts.
